Among the study's findings was that "average mosque attendance at Friday prayers has nearly doubled" since 1994. "There could be more than 6 million Muslims in America today, the researchers calculated...Perhaps the most significant finding is the determination of Muslims to make mosques 'the platform for full participation in American life.'"
