(Fatwa: 135/135/M=1433)

(1) It is not necessary.
(2) It is afdhal to recite the first part of surah al-Baqrah to head side of the dead and the last part of surah al-Baqarah to his foot side. It is proved from hadith:
عن عبدالله بن عمر مرفوعاً ، وليقرأ عند رأسه فاتحة البقره وعند رجليه بخاتمه البقرة (مشكوة) .

Allah knows Best!
