Mirza Bashir Ahmad, an able son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi has written a good note on the above topic, I want that the viewers enjoy it reading:

 Mirza Bashir Ahmad said:

Under these conditions, the question of the voice of human nature is very delicate and difficult. Except for those whose natural qualities are within the bound of moderation, most people are usually deluded about their own nature.

Human nature is a reality which no one can deny and its every characteristic demands a voice. For instance, speaking the truth is a natural quality. It demands that whenever something happens, one should report it exactly as it happened without adding anything to it. This demand is called the voice of human nature. In order to keep it alive, the Holy Quran says:

‘So set your face to the service of religion with single-minded devotion. And follow the nature made by Allah, the nature in which He has fashioned mankind.'(al-Rum 30:31)

Now everyone should look into himself and ask if his nature tells him anything about God or not. We should sit down alone and ask ourselves whether our existence is the result of chance or is there someone who created us?

Apart from inquiring into rational arguments in this respect do we hear any voice of nature? The Holy Quran says:

‘And remember when your Lord brought forth from  Adam’s children–out of their loins−their offspring and made them bear witness against their own selves saying: “Am I not your Lord?” they said,

“Yea, we do bear witness.” This He did lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection, “We were surely unaware of this.” ‘(al-A‘raf 7:173)

This holy verse implies that when God created man, He invested him with certain innate characteristics. One is reminded that he has a Creator of Whom he should not remain unaware.

God did this so that on the Day of Judgment no one should render the excuse that had one not been totally unaware of God’s existence, one would certainly have believed in Him. Another innate characteristic tells us that we have not come into existence by ourselves, and it is the creative power of a Supreme Being that has created us.

Anyone, whose nature has not been buried under external influences, often hears the voice that he has a Creator. Even those who have buried their nature under the veils of darkness and ignorance sometimes have experiences which awaken their true nature and they hear its voice beckoning them to their Creator. At the time of sudden and extreme distress many a time even an atheist exclaims ‘O God! O Allah!’

Someone may object that this is merely the result of habit, but I say habits are themselves a result of circumstances. The person who has been denying God’s existence for years and whose speech and writings are full of vitriolic propaganda against the believers cannot call out to God just by habit.

His habit is to defile and abuse God, not to call Him for help. Therefore, these utterances from the tongue of a hardened atheist cannot result from anything other than the voice of human nature.

Sometimes hardships come upon man and turn his world upside down. These sudden shocks also reveal man’s innate nature and enable him to hear its voice.

    When one says that there is no God, they are actually fooling themselves, for deep down in every man, woman, and child, is the fundamental idea of God. It may be obscured by calamity, by pomp, by worship of other things, but in some form or other it is there. For faith in a Power greater than ourselves, and miraculous demonstrations of that power in human lives, are facts as old as man himself. Faith in some kind of God is a part of our make-up, just as much as the feeling we have for a friend. If we are willing to search fearlessly, we find that He is there. He is as much a fact as
    we are. We will always find the Great Reality deep down
    within us. In the last analysis it is only there that God may be found.
