human instinct, human intuition


Explanation:
The term is considerably more lucid outside it's literal translation, the first answer would be preferred for scientific usage, but in literary and academic genres within the scope of the Humanities, human intuition or perhaps a consciousness or awareness captures the soul of what is being expressed.... implying something less scientific, more surreal, as any religious text would most likely utilize.

The best suggestion I see possible after researching it is instinctivity. While searching, I found that the noun instinctivism only exists in written works. It seems also acceptable in this context although it is not recognized by any of the famous dictionaries I looked it up in, so I go for the first one as it is the recognized one. Please let me know if you get any client feedback on it as it is still a suggestion. Good luck.

agree  hassan zekry: However;by your using the word natural, you expressed the meaning correctly. So, natural disposition can do.
13 hrs
  -> Because as we know pre means 'before' and فطرة is not a tendency. It is a previous tendency. Look up surat Al A'araf, verse 172, when Allah made us humans testify to His Rububiyyah (Lordship). Good luck.

you are right but it is also used as natural or innate
If we used natural, it would be الطبيعة البشرية
Instinct: سَلِيقَة ; غَرِيزَة ; فِطْرَة in babylon
فِطْرَة : in Hans Wehr and Al-Mawrid
I found it (instinct) also at:http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/ip/rep/H007.htm#H007SECT2
And found it (innate) at:
http://www.al-islam.org/al-tawhid/lubb_al_lubab/1.htm
so
اقترح للمذهب الفطري
The innate Sect
