Ayah

فَإِنۡ خِفۡتُمۡ فَرِجَالًا أَوۡ رُكۡبَانًا ۖ فَإِذَآ أَمِنتُمۡ فَٱذۡكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ كَمَا عَلَّمَكُم مَّا لَمۡ تَكُونُواْ تَعۡلَمُونَ

Translation

If ye fear (an enemy), pray on foot, or riding, (as may be most convenient), but when ye are in security, celebrate Allah's praises in the manner He has taught you, which ye knew not (before).<br/>

Tafsir

And if you are in fear, of an enemy, or a torrent, or a predatory animal, then standing (rijaal, plural of raajil), praying while walking, or mounted (rukbaan, plural of raakib). In other words, in whichever way you can, facing the direction of the qibla or otherwise, making the gestures of genuflexion and prostration; but when you are secure, from any fear, then remember God, by performing prayer, as He taught you what you knew not, before He taught you its obligations and its proper ways (the particle kaaf [of ka-maa, 'as'] has the same meaning as mithl ['like'], while the maa is related to the verbal action, or is relative).
