Deborah was both a prophet and a judge, a strong and brave leader over all of Israel. Before Israel had kings, judges were the top leaders in Israel. Judges were primarily military leaders sent by God to rescue Israel from foreign armies, but because she was a prophet too, Deborah also held court and judged between the people as Moses had done. The Israelites were not following God when Deborah became the judge over Israel, but she led them back to Him. Deborah showed herself to be strong, brave, wise, with trust and faith in God. When others were doing evil, she followed the Lord and listened to His word. When others feared the enemy armies, she was brave and trusted God. She judged the people by the wisdom given to her from God and she led the people back to the Lord.
Deborah has returned today to give victory to Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip).
