No its not haram, but its not the sunnah and it is recommended that you should not lay on your stomach for sleep. There are also medical reasons that one should not lay on his stomach for sleep. I have to go for sleep for now and I am sorry for that but I gave you this answer so that your query will be answered ,however I will try to give you a more detail answer later. :)

Ibn Tikhfa al-Ghifari reported that his father told him that he had been one of the People of the Bench. He told him, "I was sleeping in the mosque during the last part of the night, lying on my stomach. Someone came to me and moved me with his foot, saying, 'Get up. This is a manner of lying down which Allah hates.' I raised my head and the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was standing by my head."

  1. Abu Umama reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, passed by a man in the mosque who was lying on his front. He kicked him with his foot and said, "Get up. It is the sleep of Jahannam

@ sadie , can you plz explain why the man was kicked . Is lying on frontside such a bad sin?

So far I haven't read anywhere that it is a sin. However it is said to be a way of Satan. Following him is not ideal for one who seeks the pleasure of Allah subhana WA taala. A kick and a warning is far better than the way of the people of hellfire.
