Zahak was not an arab, his original name is Azdahak which doesnt sound arabic at all.

some think he is an arab coz arab pronounced azdahak as dhahak which similar to the word means Laugher ! Persians dont pronounce "dh" and usually replace it with "Z" so from that came Zahak as a new name of Azdahak.

from Wikipedia

edited i mistakenly put this letter (),

while i meant this

Ḍād () is one of the six letters the Arabic alphabet added to the twenty-two inherited from the Phoenician alphabet (the others being ṯāʼ, ḫāʼ, ḏāl, ẓāʼ, ġayn). It represents a pharyngealized voiced alveolar plosive (IPA [dˁ]). In name and shape, it is a variant of ṣād. The phoneme was considered unique to the Arabic language by early Arabic grammarians, and hence Arabic was also known as the "language of the Ḍād". South Semitic, however, also continues the phoneme, as South Arabian ḍ , and Ge'ez Ḍpp .

In some reconstructions of Proto-Semitic phonology, there is an emphatic voiceless lateral fricative, ṣ́ (IPA [ɬˁ]), featuring as the direct ancestor of Arabic Ḍād, while merging with in most other Semitic languages.

-------------

you cant find it in most of the languages in the world so really you need to hear it to know how its pronuced ,not sure if there are sites where you can listen to it.
