Linguistically in Arabic the word Siyam means to abstain from.

From Shariah prospective Siyam means to abstain from factors which break your sawm from dawn until sunset (Al Muftirat) having first made the intention (niyyah) to fast..

The Ummah is agreed that fasting the month of Ramadaan is obligatory, the evidence for which is in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
O you who believe! fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil).
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:183)]

The Prophet (saws) said: “Islam is built on five [pillars]…” among which he mentioned fasting in Ramadaan.
[Sahih Bukhari]

Whoever breaks the fast during Ramadaan without a legitimate excuse has committed a serious major sin.

The Prophet (saws) said, describing a dream that he had seen: “… until I was at the mountain, where I heard loud voices. I asked, ‘What are these voices?’ They said, ‘This is the howling of the people of Hellfire.’ Then I was taken [to another place], and I saw people hanging from their hamstrings, with the corners of their mouths torn and dripping with blood. I said, ‘Who are these?’ They said, ‘The people who broke their fast before it was the proper time to do so,’ i.e., before the time of Iftaar.”
[Sahih al Targheeb]

Al-Haafiz al-Dhahabi (r) said, “Among the believers it is well-established that whoever does not fast in Ramadaan without a valid excuse is worse than an adulterer or drunkard; they doubt whether he is even a Muslim at all, and they regard him as a heretic and profligate.”

Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (r) said: “If a person does not fast in Ramadaan knowing that it is Haram but making it Halal for himself to do so, kill him; and if he does it because he is immoral [but believes it is Haram], then punish him for not fasting.”
[Majmoo al Fataawa]
