52. And, O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn unto Him repentant, He will cause the sky to rain abundance on you and will add unto you strength to your strength and turn not away, guilty!

Physical and spiritual strength
Surah Huud (Hud) - 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَيَٰقَوْمِٱسْتَغْفِرُوا۟ رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوٓا۟ إِلَيْهِ يُرْسِلِ ٱلسَّمَآءَ عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا وَيَزِدْكُمْ قُوَّةً إِلَىٰ قُوَّتِكُمْ وَلَا تَتَوَلَّوْا۟ مُجْرِمِينَ (52
Mid-raaran – (rain in abundance), it is a tense of exaggerating, which has come out from the word dar-run. Dar-run means “to flow, to rain”. A word mudiraat is also from the same origin, which means “liquids, fluids, stimulants”. Mid-raaran means “That Who rains abundance”.
Territory of the tribe of Aad was dry and withered but the land was very fertile. If it rained abundant, then every crop was produced more than enough. But if it did not rain, then there was no any proper source of water for irrigation. Prophet Hud (peace be upon him) causes to remember to His folk: There is a way of escaping from this calamity of famine, which makes a circuit continuously over your heads. I tell you the same if you are desirous to be saved.
In this verse, that method of dwelling comfortably in this world has been explained by Hud (peace be upon him). He (peace be upon him) said: You should ask forgiveness of God Almighty every time regarding your errors and omissions, incline unto Him in every difficulty. He will cause to rain abundance for you when it would be necessary and by which your gardens and crops will remain flourishing, and those will produce plentiful for you, from which your apparent material strength will increase, as well as having belief in Allah Almighty and drawing your attention unto Him in all matters, your spiritual strength will also be enhanced, and collectively your strength will be manifold. If you will turn away from Allah Almighty and pay your attention toward other things, then you will be weak from both sides.
