and another ques. is that jaiz to write our name and any other person name at the wall of Kabbah sharif..?

A:

Salaams

(1) You can perform umra for one or many persons, for a live person or for a dead person or for a group of persons comprising of dead or live persons.
(http://www.islamic-laws.com/HajjBookletMSH.htm) except that one cannot do umra for oneself if he/she did the wajib Hajj within a month.

2) people are emotional in such cases and so they can write, if they wish so, although the black stone is witness to all those present by the Ka’bah
