call of nature in a graveyard is like uncovering one's 'awrah and answering the call of nature in front of people in a marketplace. Those who deliberately throw their trash into graveyards (especially those which are abandoned and whose walls are broken down) are included in this condemnation. Among the etiquette required of those who visit graveyards is taking off their shoes when they want to walk between graves.
Not cleaning oneself properly after passing water
One of the beauties of Islam is that it teaches everything that will improve and reform mankind, including how to remove impurities by cleaning oneself properly after urinating or defecating. But some people are very careless about this matter, and allow their clothes and bodies to become contaminated, thus causing their prayers to be invalidated. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) told us that this is one of the causes for the punishment in the grave. Ibn 'Abbas said: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) passed by one of the gardens of Madinah, and heard the sound of two men being punished in their graves. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "They are being punished, but they are not being punished for any major sin. One of them used not to clean himself properly after urinating, and the other used to spread malicious gossip." (Reported by Al-Bukhari; see Fath Al-Bari, 1/317). Indeed, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that "most of the punishment of the grave will be because of urine." (Reported by Imam Ahmad, 2/326; see also Sahih Al-Jami', 1213).
Not cleaning oneself properly after urinating also includes undue haste in completing the action, or deliberately urinating in a position or place where the urine can come back on oneself, or failing to clean oneself afterwards, or not cleaning oneself properly. Modern imitation of the kuffaar has reached such an extent that some rest rooms for men contain wall-mounted urinals which are open to view, so a person who uses them is urinating in full view of anyone who comes and goes with no shame, in the midst of impurity. Thus he combines two abhorrent and forbidden acts in one deed: not hiding his private parts from the view of others, and nor cleaning himself properly after urinating.
Eavesdropping on people who do not want to be heard
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): "And spy not (on one another)” [Al- Hujuraat 49:12].
Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Whoever listens to people's conversations without their permission will have molten lead poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection” (Reported by Al-Tabarani in Al-Kabeer, 11/248-249; see also Sahih Al-Jami', 6004).
If this person then goes and tells others of the conversation he overheard in order to cause trouble for them, then his sin of spying is compounded by another sin, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The eavesdropper will not enter Paradise." (Reported by Al-Bukhari, see Fath Al-Bari, 10/472).
Being a bad neighbor
Allah has enjoined kind treatment of neighbors in the Qur'aan (interpretation of the meaning): "Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, the poor, the neighbor who is
