Why do we specifically pray for the rebuilding of the Beit HaMikdash on Sukkot (in bentching)?

What does Eliyahu mean that there will only be rain “according to my word”? Why didn’t Eliyahu just make it rain, why did he gather all B’nei Yisrael on Har HaCarmel? What is the significance of the small cloud?

Why does the Mishna Brurah specifically warn against lashon hara in the sukkah?
