Muslims believe that it was during the month of Ramadan that the Koran was first revealed in its entirety to Prophet Muhammad by the angel Gabriel on what is known as "Laylat al-Qadr." .... Will this answer serve as right answer I hope?

The origin of "Ramadan", the sacred Muslim occassion, can be traced partly to historic accounts as well as the various holy Islamic texts. A great part of the history of Ramadan depends on ancient Islamic folklore.

Because the  Muslims do follow the lunar calendar the month of Ramadan will occur.

He said: "Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed as guidance and clarification to humankind, and a distinction between right and wrong. So, whoever from among you witnesses the month should fast it." (2: 185)

So Ramadan is often called the holy month as Muslims try to spend much of their waking hours readingtheir  Holy Book.
