It is at the discretion of the referee. If the rain is so heavy that it impairs visibility significantly or contributes to a severely waterlogged pitch the referee can make a call as to whether the game is abandoned. If the waterlogging is the fault of the home team (e.g. cases where drainage is not up to the minimum league requirements) the game can be awarded to the visiting team. You dont stop the game you keep playing. Rain or not you still play the game. You stop the game.
