In the question you are confusing aspects.

Both can be correct.
One deals with revoking grant rights identified to whom they are granted, user1, negating the grant directive.

The other is more uniform revoke write rights from user1

Context of the <permissions> will dictate the correct pronoun

MS allows the use of "TO" in place of "FROM", even if it sounds odd when read out.  They are synonyms to each other in this command and both function the same way.
