The Cow 2:255, I don't understand it

It's a winter,the weather was extremely cold and there's a little boy selling tissues on the corner, of a big shopping complex, the people were in and out of the cold. The little boy was so cold that he wasn't trying to sell many tissues and he's shivering so badly as he just wore a piece of clothes. 

He walked up to a nearest stall and there's man that looked nice with his bright face and smile, then he said hardly as his teeth touched each others, "Hello sir, you wouldn't happen to know where a poor boy could find a warm place to sleep tonight would you? You see, I sleep in a box up around the corner there and down the alley and its awful cold in there for tonight. Sure would be nice to have a warm place to stay." 

The man looked at the little poor boy with his eyes full of empathy and said, "I would tell you for sure, you go down the street to that small white building and you knock on the door. When they come out the door you just say The Cow 2:225 and they  will let you in." 

So he did. He walked up the steps and knocked on the door, a man answered and the door opened widely. The man with a white hairs and bright face smiled in front of him.

He looked up and said, "The Cow 2:225." 
The man said, "Come on in, son." 

He took him in and he sat him down in a split bottom rocker in front of a great big old fireplace, and he went off. The boy sat there for a while and thought to himself: The Cow 2:255. I don't understand it, but it sure makes a cold boy warm. 

Later he came back and asked him "Are you hungry?" 
He said, "Well, just a little. I haven't eaten in a couple of days, and I guess I could stand a little bit of food," 

The man took him in the kitchen and sat him down to a table full of wonderful food. He ate and ate until he couldn't eat any more. Then he thought to himself:The Cow 2:255 ... Boy, I sure don't understand it but it sure makes a hungry boy full. 

The man took him upstairs to a bathroom to a huge bathtub filled with warm water, and he sat there and soaked for a while. As he soaked, he thought to himself: The Cow 2:255 ... I sure don't understand it, but it sure makes a dirty boy clean. You know, I've not had a bath, a real bath, in my whole life. The only bath I ever had was when I stood in front of that big old fire hydrant as they flushed it out.

The man came in and got him. He took him to a room, tucked him into a big old feather bed, pulled the covers up around his neck, kissed him goodnight and turned out the lights. As he lay in the darkness and looked out the window at the snow coming down on that cold night, he thought to himself: The Cow 2:225... I don't understand it but it sure makes a tired boy rest. 

The next morning he heard a sound like the man sing a song, even he don't understand, it really pleasant to his ears and make he felt peace. Then after some time the man came back up and took him down again to that same big table full of food. After he ate, he took him back to that same big old split bottom rocker in front of the fireplace and picked up a big old book. He sat down in front of him and looked into his young face. 

"Do you understand The Cow 2:255?" the man asked gently.
He replied, "No, Sir, I don't. The first time I ever heard it was last night when the nice man at the stall told me to use it,"

He opened the Holy Book, Quran to The Cow(Baqarah) 2:255 and began to recite the verse. 

“Allah! There is no god but He – the living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creature As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The supreme (in glory).”
[Surah al-Baqarah 2:255]

Right there, in front of that big old fireplace, he gave his heart and life to Allah. He sat there and thought: The Cow 2:255. I understand it now and it sure makes a lost boy feel safe.  

لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله 

There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
