Xavi brought the curtain down on his decorated Camp Nou career in 2015, signing a two-year deal with the Qatari side.
The 37-year-old midfielder has now renewed his contract in the Middle East for a third season.
World Cup and two-time European Championship winner Xavi is captain at Al Sadd and helped the club to a third-place finish in his first Stars League campaign.
The Doha-based side sit second this season, three points adrift of leaders Lekhwiya with Xavi having appeared in all 17 matches, contributing six goals.
