Minţaqah (Arabic: منطقة[ˈmintˤaqa]; plural مناطق manāṭiq [maˈnaːtˤiq]) is a term for a first-level administrative division in Saudi Arabia and Chad, and for a second-level administrative division in several other Arab countries. It is often translated as region, district, or, in Saudi Arabia, as province. The literal meaning is "region" or "area."

The Mintaqah in Syria was formerly called Qadaa.
