Sad that the Messenger of Allah (saw) heard that there was a dispute among Banu Amr bin Awf, so he went to them with some other people to reconcile between them. The Messenger of Allah (saw) was delayed there, and the time for Zuhr came. Bilal came to Abu Bakr and said to him: "The Messenger of Allah (saw) has been delayed (there) and the time for prayer has come, will you lead the people in prayer?" Abu Bakr said: "Yes, if you wish.' Bilal said the Iqamah and Abu Bakr went forward and said the Takbir for the people.* Then the Messenger of Allah (saw) came, passing through the rows (of praying people) and stood in the (first) row and the people started clapping. Abu Bakr would never glance sideways in his prayer but when the people clapped so much he looked back and (saw) the Messenger of Allah (saw). The Messenger of Allah (saw) gestured to him to carry on praying. Abu Bakr raised his hands praising Allah the Mighty and Sublime, and retreated till he reached the (first) row. Then the Messenger of Allah (saw) went forward and led the people in the prayer. When he completed the prayer he turned to face the people and said: 'O people, why did you start clapping when something unusual happened to you in the prayer? Clapping is only for women. So whoever among you comes across something in the prayer should say: 'Subhan Allah' for there is none who will not turn round when they hear him saying Subhan Allah. O Abu Bakr! What prevented you from leading the people in the prayer when I gestured you to do so?' Abu Bakr replied: 'It is not fitting for the son of Abu Quhafah to lead the prayer in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (saw).'" (Sahih) *That is, he started the prayer for the congregation.

"There was some fighting among Banu Amr bin Awf, and news of that reached the Prophet (saw). He prayed Zuhr, then he went to them to reconcile between them. Then he said to Bilal: 'O Bilal, if the time for Asr comes and I have not come back, then tell Abu Bakr to lead the people in prayer.' When the time (for Asr) came, Bilal called the Adhan, then the Iqamah, then he said to Abu Bakr: 'Go forward.' So Abu Bakr went forward and started to pray. Then the Messenger of Allah (saw) came and started passing through the rows of people until he stood behind Abu Bakr, and the people clapped. Abu Bakr was such that whenever he started praying, he would never glance sideways, but when he noticed that the clapping persisted he turned around. The Messenger of Allah (saw) gestured to him to carry on praying. Abu Bakr praised Allah the Mighty and Sublime for the Messenger of Allah (saw) having told him to continue. Then Abu Bakr moved backward on his heels, and when the Messenger of Allah (saw) saw that, he came forward and led the people in prayer. When he completed the prayer he said: 'O Abu Bakr, when I gestured to you, what kept you from continuing (to lead the people)?' He said: 'It does not befit the son of Abu Quhafah to lead the Messenger of Allah (saw) in prayer.' And he (the Prophet (saw)) said to the people: 'If you notice something (during the prayer), men should say Subhan Allah and women should clap.'" (Sahih)
