Al-Maadeed (Arabic: المعاضيد ), also spelled Al-Maadid or Al-Maadhid, is one of the primary tribes in Qatar. Though they are mainly present in Qatar, there are Maadeed's in Kuwait as well as Saudi Arabia. The Al-Maadeed's are descendants of the tribe, Bani Tamim.

In Qatar, the Al-Maadeed tribe includes, but does not exclude, many of the major families:
* Al Thani
* Al-Ali
* Al-Assiry
* Al-Badi
* Al-Ghanim
* Al-Ibrahim
* Al-Jattal
* Al-Mahasheed
