Who created Allah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 57 Surah Hadid verses 2-3:
To Allah belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He Alone grants life and causes death, and has power over everything. He is the First, as well as the Last! The Manifest, as well as the Hidden! And He has knowledge of everything.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 112 Surah Ikhlaas verses 3-4:
Neither has He an offspring, nor is He is the offspring of anyone! And none is equal with Him in rank.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Ash-Shura verse 11:
There is Absolutely nothing like Him (Allah) in the whole Universe!!! He is the All-Hearing, The All-Seeing!! To Him Alone belong the keys of the treasures of the heavens and the earth!!
Your Question: Who created god, how god came into being,
Allah Subhanah is The Absolute Original Creator of everything that exists in creation; and it is in the inherent nature of only those in creation to be created! The Creator is not created, but He is the One and Only One Who Creates! That Absolute Original Creator of absolutely everything that exists in creation is Allah Subhanah, the One and Only Supreme Lord, Creator, Master, Sustainer, and Cherisher of everything that exists.
Allah Subhanah is that One and Only Being Who was in existence when there was absolutely nothing before Him; He is that One and Only Absolute Original, the Absolute Creator of everything that exists in the heavens and the earth.
Hudaifah reports that the Messenger of Allah(saws) used to invoke Allah and in His Praise would say: You (Allah) are the First, as there was nothing before You! And you are the Last, for there is nothing after You!.

Beloved brother, absolutely everything that exists in this universe owes its creation to the One and Only Original Creator Allah Subhanah; He is The Creator Who creates and is not and cannot be created; for it is only in the inherent nature of creation to be created. The very Essence and Nature of being the Al-Khaliq (The Creator) Demands and Signifies that a Khaliq (Creator) cannot be created, but The Creator is the Only One Who creates; and that One and Only Creator of everything that exists in creation is Allah Subhanah wa Taala.
Abu Hurairah reported that Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The Shaytaan comes to man and asks, 'Who created so-and-so.. until finally he asks, 'Who created your Lord?' The people will continue raising questions until (instigated by the whisperings of the Shaytaan) they will ask, 'Allah created the creation, but who created Allah?' So whoever is faced with such a situation should say, 'I believe in Allah and His Messengers'."

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
