Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming water is leaking into the vehicle when it rains.

There are many possible leak points. The first thing you'll want to do is make sure the doors close properly and all door seals are in good condition.

The leak may be from windshield or back glass sealer, it could be coming in through the cowl, a door, it could be a crack in body seam sealer, if you have a sunroof that is a common source for leaks. The drain tubes will often become restricted and cause a leak into the headliner. Remember that the place you're seeing the water collect may not be near the source of the leak.

If you don't see anything with the doors and seals, the sunroof is ruled out or if you don't have one, then the best thing to do would be to watch for signs of water inside with a flashlight while a helper runs a garden hose over the vehicle. Trim panels may need to be removed to locate the area where it is coming in.
