Have you checked the door seals? if you have checked all the rest, such as rear windows, 3rd brake light and rear vents, there isnt many other possibilites other than rear door seals and rear door window seals. what did you use to reseal the others?

Door seals are ok no leak , i used black silicon for sealing but still little bit of leaking from rear window (i re sealed it 2 times ) and some leak from the slide window but i dont know from where is the big leak

hmmmm, i'm not sure then. i would say remove all the seals around the rear windows and sliding windows and strip all silicone off gasket and reseal once more and give it the allotted amount of time to dry.

May I suggest that you remove the seals one at a time and reseal starting with the highest one I know this is time consuming but you need to eliminate each possibility individually. Also we might have a better Idea of what is happening if you say what is actually is wet and where. As a builder I can say that blind caulking and caulking every thing can cause it's own problems which become harder to solve.

the most wet things is behind the drivers side rear seat , and it leaks also from the upper right side of the rear window ( behind rear passenger ) and from the middle upper side of the rear window and also there is water in the rail of the slide window

Have you tried sealing and covering the back window completely with plastic and duct tape,
just make sure that the plastic and tape are tight and when it rains look to see if water has got behind the cover. All you can do is try to isolate each external likely problem point individually.
