In Classical Arabic, وَضَعَ means to put, place, and so the verbal noun وَضْعٌ means placing, putting, situating, situation, i.e. the act of putting something somewhere. Just as the English word situation came to mean the conditions and circumstances in which something occurs, so due to European influence the use of وَضْع was extended to have this meaning too.
