It was narrated that Tha'labah bin Zahdam said:

"We were with Sa'eed bin Al-'Asi in Tabaristan, and Hudhaifah bin Al-Yaman was with us. He said: 'Which of you offered the fear prayer with the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him)?' Hudhaifah said: 'I did', and he described it. He said: 'The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) offered the fear prayer, leading one group who had formed rows behind him in praying one rak'ah, while the other group was between him and the enemy. So he led the group that was near him in praying one rak'ah, then they left and took the place of others, and the others came and he led them in praying one rak'ah.'"

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) led them in praying Zuhr. The idolaters said: 'They have a prayer after this that is dearer to them than their wealth and sons.' Then the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) led them in praying 'Asr. He divided them into two rows, behind him. He led them all in bowing, then when they raised their heads he led the row that was closest to him in prostrating, while the others remained standing. When they raised their heads from prostration, the second row prostrated, as they had already bowed with the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). Then the front row moved forward, so each of them took the place of his companion. Then the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) led them all in bowing, then when they raised their heads from bowing, the row that was closest to him prostrated while the others remained standing, then when they had finished prostrating, the others prostrated, then the Prophet (Peach be upon him) said the taslim for all of them together.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) led us in praying 'Asr and divided us into two groups, a group that prayed with the Prophet (Peach be upon him) and a group that guarded him.
