Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?

The Cosmological Argument: Rational proof of Allah (God) – Islamic Web Library

Narrated Jubair bin Mut`im:

I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) reciting Surat at-Tur in the Maghrib prayer, and when he reached the Verse: ‘Were they created by nothing, Or were they themselves the creators, Or did they create the Heavens and the Earth? Nay, but they have no firm belief Or do they own the treasures of Your Lord? Or have they been given the authority to do as they like…’ (52.35-37) my heart was about to fly (when I realized this firm argument).
