Some acts are reprehensible when someone is relieving himself such as talking to anyone or to urinate over a crevice in the ground. It is also reprehensible to urinate facing wind direction if it is in an open area. 

What is reprehensible when relieving oneself

When relieving oneself in an open area and it is windy, it is reprehensible to do it facing the direction of the wind, so as to guard against the possibility of the urine being blown back at oneself. It is also reprehensible to converse with anyone.

‘A man passed by the Prophet (peace be upon him) as he was urinating and offered a greeting, but the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not reply.’

It is also reprehensible to urinate over a crevice in the ground.

:Qatadah reports

‘Allah’s messenger reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) made clear that no one should urinate over a crevice or a hole in the ground. People asked Qatadah what was wrong with urinating over a hole. He answered that holes were said to be the homes of the jinn.’

Related by Abu Dawud, hadith No. 29; al-Nassa’i, hadith No. 34. Ibn Hajar mentions in Al-Talkhis vol. 1, p. 106 that Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn al-Sakan grade this hadith as authentic

Moreover, it may be the home of an animal and it would be harmed by the urine. It is also reprehensible to take anything in which Allah’s name is written, except when necessary.

‘When the Prophet (peace be upon him) went into the toilet, he would take off his ring.’

Related by Abu Dawud, hadith No. 19; al-Tirmidhi, hadith No. 1,746; al-Nassa’i, hadith No. 5,213; Ibn Majah, hadith No. 303

 However, this is overlooked when it is necessary to take it in, as in the case with banknotes bearing Allah’s name. If one should leave these outside, they may be stolen or he may forget to pick them up when leaving.
