Truth was established

Thanks revolution for this mutala'ah, this elucidation:

This is an example of the ayat ‘So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them...’ (8:al-Anfal,the Spoils of War:17)

فَلَمْ تَقْتُلُوهُمْ وَلَـكِنَّ اللّهَ قَتَلَهُمْ

The following occurred in Afghanistan.

Mutala‘ah (n.): Elucidation; Ascertainment of the truth – tawqi‘at al-haqq -- for those who know initially or after a question from them referring to events in the world. Tawqi‘at are signatures authorizing action on a petition; thus it might be ‘validating signs of the Real.’ However, the translation has drawn on a Qur’anic use of the root verb – waqa‘a al-haqq – ‘Truth was established’ [7:the Heights:118]. The two versions reinforce each other.
