To Walk on Water

"The disciples failed to find their prophet, so they went out to seek him and found him walking upon water. One of them said to him, "Prophet of God, shall we walk toward you?" "Yes," he replied. As the disciple put one foot forward and then the next, he sank. Jesus said, "Stretch forth your hand, you man of little faith. If the son of Adam had a grain or atom's weight of faith, he would walk upon the water."

- Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Kitab az-Zuhd

(from The Muslim Jesus, pg 70-71)
