to be able to; to be possible to〜こと が できる
koto ga dekiru
(You) cannot stop time.かん を めること  できません。
zikan wo tomerukoto ha dekimasen.
Using は in this sentence might be more suitable because it is more all-encompassing than が (it implies that no one can stop time), while が is more specific and might refer to something like being unable to stop time on a personal capacity.
