I'd like to mention that prophet Huud is most likely the Biblical prophet Eber, though that's not certain. It is based on accounts of the time and place he lived. I suggest,
{11:50} And to [the tribe of] Aad, [We sent] their brother Huud (Eber). He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no god but He. You are but inventors of lies."

Quote:
{11:51} O my people, I do not ask you for it any reward. My reward is only from the one who created me. Then will you not reason?

I'd just capitalize "the One,"
{11:51} "O my people, I do not ask you for it any reward. My reward is only from the One who created me. Then will you not reason?"

Quote:
{11:52} And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals."

I suggest,
{11:52} "And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you pouring and add strength to your strength. And do not turn away nefariously."
