This question, in Islam, is upside down. Everything and everybody is a creation of God, including existence. Things and people exist because of God, and they cannot exist without Him. God says in the Quran, 36:82, that when He wills something, He says to it: “Be” and it is. Not only does this illustrate the infinite power of God, but it also makes it clear that everything and everybody has always existed in a world known only to God. Existence as we know it, then, is a matter of transference from one world known only to God, to a world that we know.
