In this article, I would like to present some of the traditions recorded
in the Sunni collections of the traditions Regarding him:

The Messenger of Allah said: “Al-Hasan and al-Husain are the chiefs of
the youth of Paradise and Fatimah is the chief of their women.”

The last part of the above tradition probably means that Imam Husain (AS),
by sacrificing himself and his family, preserved the religion of Prophet
Muhammad (PBUH&HF) from full annihilation.

Abu Huraira narrated:

The Prophet (PBUH) looked toward Ali, Hasan, Husain, and Fatimah (AS),
and then said: “I am in war with those who will fight you, and in
peace with those who are peaceful to you.”

I went to the Prophet (PBUH&HF) one night about something I required
and he came out with something (I did not know what) under his cloak.
When I had finished telling him my business I asked him what he had
under his cloak, and when he opened it I saw al-Hasan and al-Husain on
his hips. He then said, “These are my sons and my daughter’s sons. O
Allah, I love them, so I beseech Thee to love them and those who love
them.

Anas ibn Malik Narrated:
When Allah’s Messenger (PBUH&HF) was asked which member of his family
was the dearest to him, he replied, “Al-Hasan and al-Husain.” He used to
say to Fatimah, “Call my two sons to me,” and then would sniff and
cuddle them.

Imam Husain (AS) said: “Don’t you see that the truth is not followed
and the falsehood is not discouraged? (The situation is so severe) so
that a Believer wishes to meet Allah (i.e., to die). And today I don’t
see death but prosperity, and living with tyrants is nothing but
disgust and disgrace.”

Sunni Reference: Hilyatul Awliyaa, by Abu Nu’aym, v2, p39
Imam Husain (AS) said in the day of Ashura: “If you do not have any
religion, then at least be noble and broad-minded in your present life.”
