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:
 
"One must know for certain that whatever one does, every thought, good or bad in his heart, no one knows these except God the Just. God the All-High is present everywhere, and sees all, knowing the quantity and quality of everything. It is thou who art negligent and ignorant. Whoever knows not, is not on his guard. He forgets God, and Satan tempts him to do something evil. He thus becomes busy with evil-doing in the presence of God the Merciful, either molesting someone, or abusing him. In the hereafter he will be exposed."
 
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, pp.23-24)
Remedies:
 
"...so says God the All-High: A sincere devotee is one who sees Me as if present before him, whatever he is doing and wherever he is, feeling ashamed to do wrong. If an evil thought appears in his mind, or a desire to do wrong, or eat something that is not lawful to him, — he must at once appeal to Me, and I shall save him from the temptation offered by Satan, and from that evil deed which will be followed by punishment in the hereafter. And I shall cast into his heart the wish to act righteously. He will then act properly, receiving bliss and happiness in the hereafter. His life will pass pleasantly, and death will be pleasant."
 
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.24)
