Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad. In Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us about causes of darkness and remedies to get back into Light:

Causes:
 
"O, believers! God save us from neglect, — neglect of the truth is a calamity. So far as you can do not neglect remembering God (Haqq), do not be lazy in remembering God the All-High. The negligent one loses (all). God will make the necessities of life scarce for one who forgets the Truth. In the hereafter God will forget him. Therefore do not be negligent, realize your own position and conditions."
 
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.10)
Remedies:
 
"The (real) believer is one who is always patient, pious, sincere and truthful, clean in his beliefs, and modest, whose heart is full of the fear of God, who is free from wrath and hatred, and is pure. In his every action he sees his Lord (Khudawand) present before him, always remembering God. Every slave of God who acts in this way will receive in this world splendour and affluence, and in the hereafter he will be in Paradise, in the presence of his Lord (Mawla-y-i khud), Murtada 'Ali. " ;
 
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.7)
