When Mercy Wouldn’t Move a Mountain

I ran across this fun story attributed to Muhammad:

When asked by sceptics to provide proof of the divine inspiration of his teachings, the Prophet responded by commanding the distant Mount Sala to come to him. But the mountain did not move. Muhammad was not preturbed: “God is merciful,” he said. If the mountain had come, we would have been crushed. Now I will go to the mountain and give thanks to Him.”

Pearl 116 – Ross, David. 2006. 1001 pearls of wisdom. San Francisco: Chronicle Books.

I found that to be an uplifting story of optimism and faith. What’s your favorite short wisdom story?
