If you want to know your worth to Allah subhanahu ta’ala, then see what you are doing with your life.
Hussain taught millions of people after him that there’s only one Right choice - life with honour. The most challenging thing is to take the first step. Hussain has taken the first step.. It is now easy for us to follow.
I am the son of the one who was slaughtered in Karbala,
I am the son of the one who was lying in the desert,
I am the son of the one whose head was cut off from the nape (of the neck),
I am the son of the one who was stripped of his turban and his robe,
I am the son of the one who was thirsty until he died,
I am the son of the one who was oppressed until he passed away,
I am the son of the one whose head is on a spear and is being presented as a gift,
I am the son of the one whose women were taken as captives from Iraq to Syria,
I am the son of the one upon whom the angels in the heavens wept,
I am the son of the one for whom the jinns on earth wailed and the birds in the sky lamented..
After the martyrdom of our Master Imam Hussain عليه السلام his blessed head and the heads of all those who were martyred with him were severed and thereafter sent to obaidullah, who was governer of Kufa.When the Blessed head of Imam Hussain عليه السلام was placed in front of obaidullah, he used a stick to scratch the Blessed front teeth of Imam Hussain عليه السلام. Zaid bin Arqam radi-Allah-anhu was in the gathering. Witnessing this insolent behavior, he angrily reprimanded obaidullah. “Lift the stick from these teeth” he said, I swear by the being besides whom nobody else is worthy of worship, I saw the lips of Rasulullah (sallAllaho-alaihi-wa-ala-alihi-wasallam) touching and kissing these lips.”

Sayyida Salama(radi-Allah-anha) reported that she went to Sayyida Umm Salama (radi-Allah-anha) and found her weeping. She asked her what made her weep. She said, “I saw Allah’s Messenger(sallAllaho-alaihi-wa-ala-alihi-wasallam) in my dream. There was dust on his head and beard. I asked him, ‘What is wrong with you, 0 Messenger of Allah?’ He said, ‘I have just witnessed Husayn’s (alaihi-sallam) murder.”

Hadrat Usamah ibn Zayd (Radi-Allah-anho) narrated: I went to the Prophet (sallAllaho-alaihi-wa-ala-alihi-wasallam) one night in connection with a need. The Prophet (sallAllaho-alaihi-wa-ala-alihi-wasallam) came out wrapped in something. I do not know what it was. When I had finished what I had to, I asked, ‘What is this you are wrapped into?” He uncovered it and they were Hasan and Husayn (Alaihima-sallam) on his back. He said, “They are my children-children of my daughter. 0 Allah, I love them, so do love them, and love whoso loves them.”
Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه واله و سلم declared about our Masters, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain عليهما السلام:
“These two sons of mine are the leaders of the youth in Paradise.”
"Rasul’Allah (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassallam) elongated his sujoods for Hussain (Alaihi Salaam), so in Karbala, Hussain elongated his Sujood for RasulAllah’s (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassallam) Islam”
