It's raining on the other side and they can see it, but rain is not falling on this end.
Can we call this work of God or any science student can explain it?

The phenomenon you're describing, where rain is falling on one side of the road while the other side remains dry, is often due to a weather phenomenon called a "rain shadow effect." This effect is caused by the presence of natural barriers like mountains or hills that can influence the distribution of precipitation.
Here's how it works:
Moisture-Laden Air: Wind carries moist air from one side of the barrier (mountain or hill) to the other.
Orographic Lifting: As the moist air is pushed against the barrier, it is forced to rise. As it ascends, it cools and condenses, forming clouds and precipitation. This side of the barrier is known as the windward side, and it receives significant amounts of rainfall.
Rain Shadow: Once the air crosses over the barrier and descends on the other side, it has lost much of its moisture content due to the precipitation on the windward side. This descending, dry air heats up as it descends, which further inhibits cloud formation and precipitation. As a result, the leeward side (the side opposite the wind) of the barrier receives much less rainfall, and in some cases, it may remain completely dry.
So, when you observe rain falling on one side of the road while the other side is dry, it's likely that there's a geographical barrier like a hill or mountain influencing the distribution of precipitation due to the rain shadow effect.

This can be because of the amount of water close to the direction the wind is pushing the ☁ ☁ to.

But this happens for every rainfall. You just happen to be at the boundary.
Just think of it that rain is falling over an area. There is a boundary between the area of the rainfall and the area the rain doesn't fall. Anytime u find yourself at the boundary, you will notice this.

The rain cloud ends there.
Africa is daft.
