The virtues of fasting are great indeed:

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (r) from the Prophet (saws), who said:
Allah (swt) says: ‘Fasting is Mine and it is I who give reward for it. [A man] gives up his sexual passion, his food and his drink for My sake. Fasting is like a shield, and he who fasts has two joys: a joy when he breaks his fast and a joy when he meets his Lord. The change in the breath of the mouth of him who fasts is better in Allah’s estimation than the smell of musk.’
[Sahih Bukhari]

1. One of the things reported in the Sahih Ahadith is that Allah (swt) has chosen fasting for Himself, and He will reward it and multiply the reward without measure.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

2. Fasting has no equal and the du’a of the fasting person will not be refused.
[Hadith of Al Bayhaqi]

3. The fasting person has two moments of joy: one when he breaks his fast and one when he meets his Lord and rejoices over his fasting.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

4. Fasting will intercede for a person on the Day of Judgment, and will say, “O Lord, I prevented him from his food and physical desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.”
[Hadith of Ahmad]

5. The smell that comes from the mouth of a fasting person is better with Allah (swt) than the scent of musk.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

6. Fasting is a protection and a strong fortress that keeps a person safe from the Fire.
[Hadith of Ahmad]

7. Whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah (swt), Allah (swt) will remove his face seventy years’ distance from the Fire.
[Hadith of Muslim]

8. Whoever fasts one day seeking the pleasure of Allah (swt), if that is the last day of his life, he will enter Paradise.
[Hadith of Ahmad]

9. In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through those who fast will enter, and no one will enter it except them; when they have entered it will be locked, and no one else will enter through it.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

10. Fasting is a pillar of Islam.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

11. The Qur’an was revealed in this month.
[Al Qur’an]

12. In Ramadaan there is a night that is better than a thousand months.
[Al Qur’an]

13. When Ramadaan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are put in chains.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

14. Fasting Ramadaan is equivalent to fasting ten months.
[Hadith of Ahmad]

15. Whoever fasts Ramadaan out of faith and with the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.
[Hadith of Bukhari]

16. At the breaking of every fast, Allah (swt) will choose people to free from Hellfire.
[Hadith of Ahmad]
