Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Saying Tasbih applies to men during prayer and clapping applies to women. Anyone who makes a sign during his prayer, a sign which is intelligible by implication, should repeat it (i.e. his prayer). (AbuDawud commented on the Hadith saying, this is a result of confusion.)

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يُونُسُ بْنُ بُكَيْرٍ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ عُتْبَةَ بْنِ الأَخْنَسِ، عَنْ أَبِي غَطَفَانَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ التَّسْبِيحُ لِلرِّجَالِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ يَعْنِي فِي الصَّلاَةِ ‏"‏ وَالتَّصْفِيقُ لِلنِّسَاءِ مَنْ أَشَارَ فِي صَلاَتِهِ إِشَارَةً تُفْهَمُ عَنْهُ فَلْيَعُدْ لَهَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ يَعْنِي الصَّلاَةَ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ هَذَا الْحَدِيثُ وَهَمٌ ‏.‏
