Did you know…

أَمْكَنَ is used in modern Arabic is a way that would be considered incorrect in classical Arabic, such as in the BBC quote above, namely with the preposition لِ. In classical Arabic, the verb أَمْكَنَ is transitive, and is used in one of two ways: (1) with the object (often implicitly understood) being the person whom someone has empowered to do something, as in the example from the Quran above, so has the meaning to empower someone, and is followed by the preposition مِنْ over, and (2), with again the object being the person for whom something is possible, and the subject being the matter that is possible, so the above BBC quote should read (per classical Arabic) إِنّ الْمُدِيرَ الْفَنّيَ لا يُمْكِنُهُ التّوَاصُلُ مَعَ فَرِيقِهِ خِلالَ الْمُبارَةِ
