What is the purpose of Ramadan?

The month of Ramadan is not like any other month; It's one of the important months that muslims have. 

This blessed month has been sent by Allah to His bondsmen to create a strong bond to themselves and to Islam by reading the holy qura'an and have a strong relationship between god and his bondsmen. A person who has been given the opportunity to be present in this month can take this as a sign that Allah has given him another opportunity to draw closer to Him and earn His paradise through worship in this month.

This month is also important because; in Ramadan we are given many opportunities to seek forgiveness for our bad sins that have been made in these 11 months. 
This is a month of reformation and self reflection, where a believer can ponder over spirituality and piety and bring a change for the better. Prophet Mohammed صلي الله عليه و سلم has clearly stated:

مَنْ لَمْ يَدَعْ قَوْلَ الزُّورِ وَالْعَمَلَ بِهِ فَلَيْسَ لِلَّهِ حَاجَةٌ فِي أَنْ يَدَعَ طَعَامَهُ وَشَرَابَهُ 
Whoever does not give up lying and evil actions, then Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink” 
Allah is not in need of any person to leave his food or drink. Allah is far from needs and desires. However, it is the mercy of Allah that He wants each and every person to leave those things which will lead him to hell and by controlling his or her desires throughout this month. 
" ان جبرئيل عرض لي فقال بعد من ادرك رمضان فلم يغفر له قلت آمين 
'Jibreel came to me and said, ‘Whoever reaches the month of Ramadan and does not have his sins forgiven and so enters the Fire, then may Allah distance him, say ameen.' So I said “Ameen” [Mustadrak al-Haakim] "

In Conclusion, Ramadan has been made so that mankind can take benefit of ajr and ra7ma from god & to create a bond with Allah that will continue throughout the eleven remaining months.

It is a month within which Allah has instructed us to place more emphasis on actions regarding our Religion as opposed to our daily routine and emphasis on worldly matters.

Thank you & Hope this information has helped you 
understand the purpose of Ramadan 
& Ramadan kareem to every Muslim.
