Al Waab is a district of Doha, Qatar, located in the south of the city. 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.

Key locations in the district include the Doha Sports City, home to many of the venues of the 2006 Asian Games, Qatar's largest structure, Aspire Tower and Qatar's largest stadium, Khalifa Stadium, as well as Qatar's largest and most famous mall, Villagio Mall, themed after the Italian city of Venice. The district also contains a number of schools, including the Doha College and the American School of Doha.

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. 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.
