Al Waab (Arabic: الوعب, romanized: Al Wa‘b) is a district situated between the municipalities of Doha and Al Rayyan in Qatar. The district has witnessed tremendous growth beginning in the mid-1990s, resulting in the construction of numerous residential compounds to house expatriates, villas, and commercial and medical developments. It is a district of Al Rayyan City, which, in turn, is a part of Metropolitan Doha.
Key locations in the district include the Doha Sports City, home to many of the venues of the 2006 Asian Games, Qatar's tallest structure, Aspire Tower and Qatar's largest stadium, Khalifa Stadium, as well as one of Qatar's most popular malls, Villagio Mall, themed after the Italian city of Venice.

Al Waab City, a real estate development currently being constructed in the district, is set to add 639 villas, 1,293 apartments, and 425 hotel rooms to the district. It is planned to accommodate over 8,000 people. Furthermore, a number of roadside retail centres have been constructed parallel to Salwa Road, the highway linking Doha to the south of the country and Saudi Arabia.
