Ok here's a quick yet not particularly easy question.
Hydrogen is the most abundant atom in the Universe.
I feel kind of silly asking this but...
Where did hydrogen originate?

Cosmology is not my strength. But, I believe the vast majority of hydrogen originates from the Big Bang. It formed after the protons and electrons cooled enough for them to bind together. Several other elements were also formed at this time, but at much smaller concentrations.
Most other elements are a result of steller evolution.
