Kim Kardashian Perfume Line Grossed $10million On First Day

image

Kim Kardashian made $10 million in just ONE DAY of selling perfume worldwide … and incredibly not even a single customer got a whiff yet.

image

Kim’s fragrance hit the online world Wednesday morning. Customers got to choose between 3 fragrances — Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Oud and Crystal Gardenia Citrus. Only 300,000 bottles were produced and they’re expected to completely sell out by Thursday night.

Beyonce could take a lesson from Kim, who made lemonade out of her robbery. She used healing crystals to calm her nerves after the Paris robbery last year, and the crystal is now the cornerstone of her perfume line.

The $10 mil sales tab didn’t happen by accident. Kim launched a social media campaign that would have impressed General MacArthur, and it clearly paid off. We’re told in just the first hour sales hit $1 million.

Kim didn’t just lend her name to the new fragrances … she was involved in every aspect of the launch, from developing the scents to creating the packaging.

When the 300,000 bottles are accounted for, she’ll have sold $14 mil … in a day and a half.

It’s no surprise that Diddy tops the list once again with estimated earnings of a whopping $130 million, attributed to success with Ciroc vodka, DeLeon tequila and Aquahydrate water as well as revenue earned from the Bad Boy Reunion Tour earlier this year and selling a chunk of his Sean John clothing line for an estimated

$70 million.

Drake comes in at number 2 with $94 million, thanks to his enormous music sales, revenue earned from the Boy Meets World Tour and other deals with brands like Apple, Sprite and Nike. Jay-Z ranks third with earnings of $42 million due to various ventures like Roc Nation and Sprint. His earnings will go even higher once his $200 million deal with Live Nation fully materializes.

There are some newcomers on the list this year as well, including Chance the Rapper (No. 5 with $33 million) who is yet to release an official studio album, and Lil Yachty (No. 20 with $11 million). Elsewhere on the list, young guns like Lil Yachty and

Virtues of the Day of Eid Al-Adha

image

Praise be to Allaah.  

When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to Madeenah, he found that they had two days on which they used to play. He said, “Allaah has given you two days better than these, the day of al-Fitr and the day of al-Adha.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1134; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 2021. 

Allaah has given this ummah two days for playing and leisure, two days for remembering Allaah and thanking Him, and asking Him for forgiveness. 

In this world the believers have three festivals or Eids:  

One Eid which is repeated each week, and two Eids which come once a year. 

The Eid which is repeated every week is Friday (Jumu’ah). 

The Eids which are not repeated, which come only once each year, are: 

1 – Eid al-Fitr, the breaking of the Ramadaan fast. This comes upon the completion of the month of Ramadaan, which is the third pillar of Islam. When the Muslims have finished fasting the month that is enjoined upon them, Allaah has prescribed that they should follow the completion of their fast with a festival on which they gather to thank Allaah, remember Him and glorify Him for His guidance. On that Eid it is prescribed for them to pray and give charity. 

2 – The second Eid is Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), which is the tenth day of the month of Dhu’l-Hijjah. This is the greater and better of the two feasts, which comes after the completion of the Hajj, for when the Muslims complete their Hajj they are forgiven. 

Rather Hajj is completed on the Day of ‘Arafah [the 9th of Dhu’l-Hijjah] with the standing in ‘Arafah, which is the major pillar of Hajj, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Hajj is ‘Arafah.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (889) and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel (1064). 

The day of ‘Arafah is the day of ransom from the Fire, when Allaah ransoms from Hellfire those who stood at ‘Arafah and Muslims who did not stand at ‘Arafah. Hence the day that follows it is a festival for all Muslims in all regions, those who attended Hajj and those who did not. 

It is prescribed for all of them to draw closer to Allaah by means of the ritual of shedding the sacrificial blood. 

The virtues of this day may be summed up as follows: 

1-     It is the best of days before Allaah. 

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Zaad al-Ma’aad (1/54): The best of days before Allaah is the Day of Sacrifice, which is the greatest day of Hajj as it says in Sunan Abi Dawood (1765), where it is narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The greatest of days before Allaah is the Day of Sacrifice.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood. 

2-     It is the greatest day of Hajj. 

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) stood between the Jamaraat on the Day of Sacrifice during his Hajj and said, “This is the greatest day of Hajj.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1742. 

That is because the greatest actions of Hajj take place on this day, when the pilgrims do the following: 

(i)                Stoning Jamrat al-‘Aqabah

(ii)              Offering the sacrifice

(iii)            Shaving the head or cutting the hair

(iv)            Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka’bah)

(v)              Saa’i (running between al-Safa and al-Marwah) 

3-     It is the Eid day of the Muslims 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The day of ‘Arafah, the day of Sacrifice, and the days of al-Tashreeq are our festival, us Muslims, and they are days of eating and drinking.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 773; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. 

And Allaah knows best.

Read President Buhari’s Sallah Message To Nigerians

image

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Nigerians especially Muslim faithful as they celebrate Eid-El-Kabir. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Muslim faithful in Nigeria as they celebrate the Eid-El-Kabir in some days to come. Buhari urged all Muslims to rise against the odds, keep our prejudices aside and strengthen the bonds of friendship and unity to keep our country together.

 

Here is Buhari’s Sallah message.

 

Fellow Compatriots,

 

I felicitate with you all, particularly the Muslim faithful, on the celebration of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir. Congratulate our Muslim brothers and sisters who are currently in Saudi Arabia to participate in the rites of the Hajj.

 

From the outset, I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians who prayed for my recovery and have continued to extend their goodwill and support after my return to the country.

 

Indeed your fervent and sincere prayers, which cut across religion, political and ethnic divides, has energised me to re-dedicate myself and this administration to the task of building a great Nigeria.

 

On the joyous occasion of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir celebration, I appeal to all Nigerians to rise against the odds, keep our prejudices aside and strengthen the bonds of friendship and unity to keep our country together.

 

For Muslims all over the world, this celebration is to commemorate the trials and triumph of Prophet (Abraham) Ibrahim.

 

As we celebrate, I sincerely believe that our nation can make rapid progress on all fronts if we re-enact the exemplary virtues, typified by Prophet (Abraham) Ibrahim, through his sacrifice, patience, steadfastness, generosity and obedience to Allah’s command and constituted authority.

 

We must learn to see ourselves as brothers and sisters from the same heritage, who must come to terms with the African proverb that ‘‘a family tie is like a tree, it can bend but it cannot break.’’

 

Once again, I assure you that this administration, which has made the security, economic well-being and prosperity of all Nigerians its priority, will not rest on its oars until we see the Nigeria of our dream.

 

I wish everyone happy Sallah celebrations.

 

MUHAMMADU BUHARI
