Different ways to pronounce جمعة

جمعة مباركة!
!Happy Friday
Chances are when you hear Friday in Arabic, it is being pronounced as

الجُمْعَة

with a sukoon on the meem. While this is correct, there are actually three ways to pronounce it by putting different vowels on the meem letter

1. الجُمُعَة – This is considered the most eloquent way
2. الجُمْعَة – بني عُقَيل This was pronounced by the tribe
3. الجُمَعَة – بني تميم This was pronounced by the tribe
