Fasting in Ramaḍān reminds us of our hungry and needy brothers and sisters. It increases our empathy for them, removes arrogance towards them and makes us more eager to give ṣadaqah (charity) to them. It also reminds us to be grateful for all the food and drink Allah al-Razzāq (The Supreme Provider) sustains us with.
On the whole, fasting teaches us to be less self-centered. By experiencing hunger, we learn how to curtail our greed, and this should help us to develop the noble quality of īthār: giving preference to others over oneself.
