Why do some pronounce the after noon prayer as Zuhar ??

Actually Luhar would sound more correct i think....


Also instead of Ramzan / Ramadhan........i think Ramalaan is the correct one...?????

I think these difference comes in....when people learn arabic/quran... using some other language by transileration ????

Actually the letter is "ð", like "that" or "with". So "Dhuhr" is pronounced ðʊhr. If we can't really pronounce "ð", some replace it with another close letter like "z" or "d". The letter "L" is not really similar, but for brothers from the Indian subcontinent, I think they pronounce "L" in a special way (strong "L") so it becomes close to "dh", so may be it's possible to use "L" instead of "ð".
But the better way is to lessen to the right ponounciation (from audio files, or from arabic speaking people) and with some practice, we can pronounce it in the correct way.
