Al Daayen (Arabic: الضعاين‎‎) is a municipality in the state of Qatar. It was the seventh municipality established by the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning after the municipalities of Doha, Al Rayyan, Al Wakrah, Umm Salal, Al Khor, and Al Shamal. The municipality was established in 1963 by virtue of law No. 11.
