    Ramadan.

    the correct one is ramadan

    In order to pronounce ض the right way , put the tip and some of the end of your tongue against the upper teeth and or higher a bit , listen to it recorded by native speaker and practice that position till you get the right pronunciation.

    Watch this about Ramadan : )

    No one can answer this question for a simple reason.. the missing letter (Rama*an) isn't pronounced as a D nor as a Z.. it's a letter only found in Arabic and is called the "ضاد" and for that reason, Arabic is called (the tongue of ضاد) because no one can pronounce this letter in a correct way except the Arabs.

    My suggestion is to listen to a native speaker saying it.. for example.. watch this video where this letter is pronounced:
