Writing someone’s name on the Ka’bah

Fatwaa ID: 1539

Aslaamu alaikum wrwb. Hope you are well mufti sahab. Sorry to disturb you. I had a question. I heard if you write whoever’s name on the kaaba with your finger Allah swt will call them there very soon inshaAllah. Is this true?
Are you allowed to do this

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The above is not established from the salaf. It may be an experimented practice of someone afterwards. It is permissible to act upon it as long as one does not regard it to be a sunnah or something established.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
