The relation between religion and human essence

Human being has two kinds of guidance: innate guidance and acquired guidance.
According to the Koran, the acquired guidance happens along with the innate guidance, it means acquired guidance needs innate humanity. The Prophet's teachings are not useful for those who lost their humanity:

Have you seen someone who rejects religion? (107/1)
The one, who lacks humanity, contradicts religion.
Monotheism is innate in human; having tendency towards worship, God and prayer, all are innate:

We belong to and are returning to Him. (1/156)
Matters all end up with God. (42/53)
Humans may call God in two positions:
When they feel helpless and desperate in their lives, and the other time when human being feel their soul is becoming near to God; and this is human perfection.

We have two kinds of consciousness: outer and inner. The outer consciousness is the sense which human is aware of it but the inner is not known by them and it is in our soul.
All creatures in the world worship God, it is a truth which is inherent in all God's creature.

Whatever is in Heaven and whatever is on earth celebrates God. He is the Powerful, the Wise (59/1)
Whatever is in Heaven and whatever is on earth celebrates God. He is the Powerful, the Wise (59/24)

Human knows and worships God innately. "Farabi" –great Persian philosopher- said: "the move of the sky and the earth are their worship and prayer as well as the rain."
