Hayhat minna al-dhilla
According to historical sources, in the event of Karbala, 'Ubayd Allah b. Ziyad had ordered his army that Imam al-Husayn (a) had to either surrender or accept the war. On the day of 'Ashura, Imam al-Husayn (a) gave a speech in front of the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd and said, "Beware that this illegitimate son ('Ubayd Allah) of the illegitimate one (Ziyad b. Abih) has made me choose between the two: drawing sword and humiliation, and never to humiliation!"
Some sources have narrated "al-ddaniyya" instead of "al-dhdhilla", as "wa hayhat minna al-ddaniyya" (and never to debasement!)
