Hayhat minna al-dhilla
According to historical sources, in the Battle 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-daniyya" (Arabic: الدَّنيئة) instead of "al-dhilla", as "wa hayhat minna al-daniyya" (and never to debasement!)
