no one can say for sure. People pretend to know.. but they actually don't! It's simply what they wish to be true.
I enjoyed the analogy of the ocean and water drops, I have always seen it the same but using light not water. If you can imagine a bright light like the sun dividing into billions of small lights those are the souls of man and of individual conscious intelligent beings. We are all interconnected to one source, we are all the same, we all come from one source of LIGHT. We will all return to this source someday and returning is understanding. We however will remain as individual identities but with greater understanding of where we come from and that we are all part of each other and your small light that came from a large bright source that was divided into billions/trillions will someday become as giant and bright as the source you came from
I have seen many soul-less humans walking about, you speak or try to make eye contact, but it is obvious that nothing resides behind their empty eyes. There are many drones surviving day to day just filling a spot. I don't thing 6.5 billion people equate to 6.5 billion souls.
In cited verse #(B-1), ALLAH (SWT) Says, “And We Have Created you, then We Have Shaped you, then We Have Said to the angels “bow down to Adam”, they bowed down except Iblees, ……”. Let’s focus our attention on the sequence of events in this verse. The first event, ALLAH (SWT) Has Created the humans (you). The second event, ALLAH (SWT) Has Shaped the humans. The third event, ALLAH (SWT) Said to the angels “bow down to Adam”. That is, the creation and the shaping of the humans have preceded the order to the angels to bow down to Adam. The word “you” in this verse refers to the entire human race from Adam to the last humans who will witness the beginning of the events of judgment day. This indicates that all the humans were created and shaped before the creation of Adam. From cited verses #(4-22) and #(4-24), we have learned that all the humans are descendants of Adam and they live on the earth since Adam and his spouse descended on it. From cited verses #(4-22) and #(4-25), we have also learned that all humans, including Adam were created from dust from the earth. How could that be?. ALLAH (SWT) Wants us to study His words carefully and to think. 276
This does not mean that ALLAH (SWT) Has Created all the humans twice. It means that ALLAH (SWT) Has Created the humans in two phases. The two phases of the creation are different. Since the creation process of each individual human has gone through the two phases, therefore there must be a common ground linking the two phases. From cited verses #(4-22) and #(4-24), it is clear that the physical creation of the human race started with the creation of Adam. This physical creation is the second phase of the creation of the human race. In the present life, physical creation means materialized existence in the present physical world (the present earth and the present universe). The first phase of the creation of the human race had not been physical in the sense described above, it must have been spiritual in a domain only known to ALLAH (SWT). Now from cited verses #(B-1) and #(B-2), we learn the following:- BEFORE THE PHYSICAL CREATION OF ADAM, ALLAH (SWT) HAS CREATED ALL THE HUMAN RACE IN A SPIRITUAL DOMAIN, ASSIGNED TO EACH INDIVIDUAL OWN SHAPE, FEATURES AND FORTUNES THAT WILL BE MATERIALIZED IN THE PHYSICAL CREATION IN THE PRESENT LIFE.
In cited verse #(B-4). ALLAH (SWT) Says that we (the humans) were dead and He Gave us life, then He Causes us to die then He Brings us to life. That is, we were dead before we were born (when He gave us the present life), then He Causes us to die then He Brings us to life (on judgment day). The first life is the physical life, that is the present life on the earth. The second life is the life in the hereafter, which will also be a physical life but different from the first life. The death between the first life and the life in the hereafter occurs when the spirit leaves the body and returns to ALLAH (SWT). The physical body ceases to function and then disintegrates over time, but the soul which contains all the characteristics and features of the human remains where it is kept in the domain of the unknown [unknown to us, but Known to ALLAH (SWT)]. Therefore, the death before we were born means that we did not have a physical body but we had a soul, that is ALLAH (SWT) Has Created our souls in the domain of the unknown before He Gave us the physical life in the present physical world.

As above so below...
At the moment you were conceived, a single sperm from billions and billions in the "milky way" infiltrated the egg and a nuclear explosion happened. How fast did your single cell turn into you? After 9 months of Gestation or 40 Weeks or 3 trimesters (in the wilderness) where you were being tempted to abort. You didn't bow down...good Job jesus.
Now do you know what stars really are now and what the earth really is or the best part, what people and every other animal is?
