The Statistics of Friday Prayer

Imams often complain that a significant part of the congregation for Friday Prayers turns up at the last possible moment, and thus misses out of the Imams sermon.

Leaving aside the issue that in many mosques the sermon is in Urdu/Bengali/other language, and thus inaccessible to many youngsters in those communities, BFTF thought it might be interesting to chart what actually happens in the lead up to Friday Prayers at a Nottingham mosque....
