Is it permissible to say circumstances willed or circumstances dictated

Is it permissible to say “circumstances willed” or “circumstances dictated”?
I read in some stories, literary works and journalistic articles the phrase  “circumstances willed” or “circumstances dictated”, or “fate decreed”. What is the ruling on these phrases?


Praise be to Allaah. 

These are inappropriate phrases, because
circumstances and fate do not have a will.

The great scholar Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen
(may Allaah preserve him) was asked about these phrases, and said:

“ ‘Fate willed’ or ‘circumstances willed/dictated’
are reprehensible phrases, because the Arabic word for circumstances,
zuroof, is the plural
of zarf, which is another
word for time – and time does not have a will. Similarly, fate does
not have a will either.

The One Who does have a will is Allaah. If a person
says ‘the decree of Allaah dictated such and such’, there is nothing
wrong with that. But it is not correct to attribute will to decrees,
because the will does not belong to the description, it belongs to the
One Who is described.” Majmoo’ Fataawa
wa Rasaa’il Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 3/131-132

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
