Authentication: Moosa (alaihis salaam) asking Allah why He gave Imaan to few people

Q: I have heard many times a narration where Moosa (alaihis salaam) asked Allah Ta'ala why he gave imaan to a few people and not all. Allah Ta'ala told him to go into a garden and choose a flower. He chose the best flower so Allah Ta'ala said that He chose Imaan for who He loved the most.

Could you tell me if this is authentic?

A: We have not seen this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
