Ramadan - The Month of Giving 

 

"The Messenger of Allah (sws) said: 'Oh people, a great blessed month has come upon you, [...] Whoever undertakes an act of obedience to Allah during this month with a righteous deed, it is as if he has performed an obligatory act at other times; and whoever performs an obligatory act during it is as one who performed seventy obligations at other times. [...] It is the month of goodwill, during which provisions are multiplied.''' 

(Ibn Khuzaymah)
