From your article Athiest

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 who-ever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
How did Allah Subhanah come into being is from amongst the ‘knowledge of the unseen’, and Allah has not given us this knowledge in the Holy Quran.
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.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) used to invoke Allah and in His Praise, would start sometimes by these words: “You are the First, as there was nothing before You! And you are the Last, for there is nothing after You!….”
Everything in existence is created, and everything that is created has to start somewhere. In light of the Holy Quran, we are commanded to believe that Allah is Creator and Originator of everything in the heavens and the earth and everything that is in between. There was nothing before Him; He was the First and He created everything in existence!
Allah says describing Himself 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!!
Allah Subhanah is The Unique, The One, The Alone! There is absolutely nothing like Him in the whole Universe. Everything was created, except ALLAH; and everything will perish, except ALLAH! There is no creator, but He, and He creates whatever He pleases!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
May Allah guide you and us all to the Straight Path of Islam.
Your Brother in Islam,
