Answering the Phone while Praying

Answering the Phone while Praying: Possible?

Some friends were praying one of the prayers at home when the telephone started to ring, and it distracted them with its ringing for a long time. Is it permissible in such cases to take a few steps forwards or backwards and pick up the receiver and say “Allahu akbar” or raise one’s voice in recitation so that the caller will know that he is praying – by analogy with (the hadith which speaks of) opening the door to one who knocks or raising his voice so that he can hear you?
