Someone is disturbed while praying

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person has something happen to him (i.e., someone speaks to him or approaches him) while praying what should he do?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

If it is a man, he should pronounce tasbeeh (glorifying Allah by saying "subhan Allah"), and if it’s a woman, she should clap. The evidence is Sahl Bin Saad’s narration that the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "If something bothers you in your salaat, men should make tasbeeh and women should clap."1

From the book What Should You Do in the Following Situations... ?

1 Sunan Abu Dawood 941, Sahih al-Bukhari (Bugha print) 1145, and Sahih Muslim 106.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
