Al Warqaa (Arabic: الورقاء‎‎, al-warqāʾ), sometimes spelled Al Warqa`a is a locality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located southeast of Dubai Creek, Al Warqaa is bordered to the north by Mirdif, the west by Nad Al Hammar and the south by Warisan.

The routes E 311 (Emirates Road) and E 44 (Al Awir Road) form the western and southern peripheries of Al Warqaa. Once a sparsely populated industrial locality close to Dubai city limits, Al Warqaa is now experiencing considerable growth due to the development of International City and other real estate projects near the area. Al Warqaa is divided into subcommunities, from Al Warqaa 1 — Al Warqaa 5.

Some landmarks in Al Warqaa include Dubai Municipality garbage disposal centre [2] Aswaaq mall and Al warqa grand Mosque.
