Contemporary translators have translated the word "maqutā" in the verse “…Surely prayer is a timed ordinance for the believers” (4:103) in a different way. In some translations, this word is translated as "certain times of prayer" and in some others it is translated into "obligatory or necessary and constant prayer". Some of these translations are based on the apparent meaning of the words regardless of other indications, such as the context and authentic traditions, and the original intention of God has not been accurately transmitted; as significant traditions of the Innocents (a.s) also have expressed another meaning for the verse. By a descriptive-analytical method, in this paper, the degree of agreement of contemporary translations in the translation of this term with expression of the Innocents (a.s), who are aware of true intention of God, has been evaluated, and ultimately, researches revealed that the second translation is more consistent with traditions. In this regard, role of word of the Imams (a.s) is shown in the correct translation of the Holy Quran.
