Nasruddin had gone to the city to settle some business, but things were not turning out well.
"You should go pray in the big mosque," Nasruddin's business partner told him. "Maybe God will help us."
Nasruddin prayed in the big mosque, but his business still went badly.
He then went and prayed in a small mosque, and the next day he was able to settle his business matters favorably.
Nasruddin then returned to the big mosque and said, "Shame on you, big mosque! You look powerful and important, but it was the little mosque who finally helped me, not you."
