"Tut" is an abbreviated form of Tutankhamun (pronounced 'toot-un-common'). However Tut had several names. His original name, before he took the throne was Tutankhaten which meant "Living image of the Aten". when he became Pharaoh he was given the name Tutankhamun which means "Living image of Amun." The pharaoh before "Tut" was named Akhenaten and changed some things in the Egyptian religon. He thought that Aten was the main god and wanted eveyone to worship Aten. For this change that challenged many Egyptains' beliefs and costums, Akhenaten was hated and shunned by the people. When Tut took the throne the change of his name meant that the old ways (and ways that were believed to be right) of having Amun as a god came back into view.

Source: Fiqh-us-Sunnah, vol 2, # 33

'Ikrimah reports from Ibn 'Abbas that the Messenger of Allah said to 'Abbas ibn 'Abdal-Mutalib: "O 'Abbas, O Uncle, shall I not give you, shall I not present to you, shall I not donate to you, shall I not tell you ten things which, if you do, Allah will forgive your first and last sins, past and present sins, intentional and unintentional sins, private and public sins? The ten actions are: pray four rak'at, reciting in every rak'ah al-Fatihah and a surah. And when you finish the Qur'anic recitation of the first rak'ah, say, while standing, 'Subhanallah, al-hamdulillah, wa la ilaha illallah, wa Allahu Akbar' ['Glory be to Allah. All praise is due to Allah. There is no God except Allah. Allah is the greatest.'] fifteen times. Then make ruku', and while you are in ruku', say the same ten times; then stand, and say the same ten times. Then go down and make sajdah, and while you're in sajdah, say the same ten times. Then sit after the sajdah, and say the same ten times. Then make sajdah, and say the same ten times. Then sit after the second sajdah, and say the same another ten times. That is seventy-five [repetitions of the phrases] in each rak'ah. Do that in each of the four rak'at. If you can pray it once a day, do so. If you cannot, then once every Friday. If you cannot do that, then once a year. And if you cannot do that then once in your life." This hadith is related by Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Ibn Khuzaimah in his sahih, and at-Tabarani. About this hadith al-Mundhiri says: "This hadith has been related through many chains and from a number of companions. The best of them is this one from 'Ikrimah. A group of scholars have graded it to be sahih, including al-Hafez Abu Bakr al-'Ajari, (al-Mundhiri's teachers), Abu Muhammad 'Abdurrahim al-Misri, and Abu al-Hassan al-Maqdisi." Ibn alMubarak says: "The tasbih prayer is a greatly desired act and it is desirable that one should punctually observe it and never neglect it. Shk. Nasruddin Alabani graded this salaat and related hadith as Sahi in his book on Propht's Prayer. Suggestions: 1. You can pray it any part of the day and night except of course during the forbidden times for performing Salat. It is encouraged during the potential nights of Laila-tul-Qadr because of the amazing blessings during that blessed night as stated in the Qur'an itself (Surah Qadr, Chapter 97). 2. Your aim is to recite the above Tasbih 300 times in Four Rakah as stated in the hadith narrated above, however, please do not count loudly or fingers or by holding beads in your hand. 3) You may count by pressing the fingers as a reminder. For example if you are in Ruku. You may press the first finger of your right hand first for the first count, then the finger next to it for second count, then the middle finger for third count, following this method until you reach the little finger of your left hand, and that will give you a count of ten. Use the same method during the whole salat.
