As is narrated by Abu Hurayra, may Allah be pleased with him, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

Whoever fasts one day for the acceptance of Allah, Allah keeps his/her face seventy years away from Hell in return for this one day. (Nasai, Siyam: 44)

Ramadan is the Salvation from Hell

Narrated from Abu Hurayra, may Allah be pleased with him, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

When the first night of Ramadan comes, Allah regards His creation with mercy. Whichever servant Allah regards with mercy, He does not torment him/her, eternally. Each day of Ramadan, Allah saves one million people from Hell who deserve going to Hell.

When the 27th night of Ramadan comes, angels surge and Allah al-Jabbar (the Irresistible) reflects Himself with His light, which nobody can depict and calls out to the angels, who are to make celebrations the next day:

“O community of angels! What is the due of the worker who fulfills his/her job thoroughly?”

Angels say:

“S/he is given his/her due completely.”

Thereupon, Allah says:

“I appoint you witnesses that I have forgiven them all.” (at-Targhb wa’t-Tarhib, 2:434)

The Gap between the Fasting Person and Hell

According to the narration of Abu'd Darda, may Allah be pleased with him, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

Whoever fasts one day for the acceptance of Allah, on the Day of Resurrection, Allah creates  a gap between him and Hell, as wide as the heavens and the earth. (Tirmidhi, Jihad: 3; at-Targhib va’t-Tarhib, 2:86)
