According to Islamic belief, it was a miraculously-generated source of water from Allah (God), which began thousands of years ago when Ibrahim's infant son Ishmael was thirsty and kept crying for water and was kicking at the ground when water gushed out.

                      Senior Sarah Bowman qualified for the NCAA meet and charted her second straight second-place regional finish in the 1500m. It was not the outcome she or anyone had anticipated. After running away from the field and winning her prelim race by 10 seconds a day earlier, Bowman suffered her first defeat of the season in her signature race. Her 4:22.68 readout left her just behind former Lady Vol teammate Heidi Dahl of East Tennessee State, who pulled off the upset in 4:22.16 by out-kicking the UT standout over the final 300 meters and holding off a last-chance burst by Bowman down the home stretch.
                      T&FN cover jinx?

                      (oops, didn't mean to say that out loud)
