Abstract: 

Comprehending Quran and understanding its profound meanings, like any other meaningful text, at first is in need of encoding its terms which like the rings of a chain, come one after the other to create the text as a whole. It is obvious that misunderstanding the meaning of a word in the text can lead to the misunderstanding the whole text. In this article the word 'masjid' (mosque) has been philologically examined, and its origin in the ancient languages followed. focusing on the Quranic usage of the word, the interpretation of it in different exegesis and translations have been studied. The word's meanings have been identified using Arabic and semitic lexicons, identifiying its semitic meaning as well as its evolution based on historical sources. Consequently, for the word 'masjid' in Quran, four equivalents have been proposed due to its contexts: a sanctuary, a shrine, a mosque, a proper name referring to the Masjed al-Haram and Masjed al-Aqsa.
