: Time come stop?.......

: Time is measuring unit. : How it can stop?

Time in the days of Newton was absolute, the way you seem to think of it. Your question shows that much.

Einstein put forth the postulate that time and space are relative things, there is no absolute viewpoint (that we can find). This means that when you measure how fast an object is going, you must measure it relative to something else.

The question of whether or not time stops is not illogical, to a certain observer, it does appear to.
