Madinat ash-Shamal is a municipality in the state of Qatar. Its capital is called Al Shamal City and it is considered to be one of the major cities in Qatar.

It borders the municipality of Al Khor.The municipality is divided into three primary zones.OverviewAsh-Shamal Municipality was created by virtue of law No.19 passed on 17 July 1972, stating the creation of new municipalities: Al-Rayyan, Al-Khor and Al-Thakhira, Al-Wakrah, Umm Salal, and Al-Shamal.Accommodating less than 8,000 inhabitants, Al Shamal is the least populous municipality in the country.
