Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) is a wireless network with mobile nodes. These networks are become more vulnerable because
their features of open medium, topologies no centralized monitoring agents. In MANET cooperation is necessary between the nodes to transfer
the packets out of their propagation. Cooperating nodes must trust each other. There are several ways to calculate the trust among those nodes.
But some of them not considered the energy factor. In this paper, a novel approach is proposed to trust the nodes in MANET. The decision on
nodes depending on this trust value is done by fuzzy logic. The entire this frame work is to detect the selfish nodes mobile ad hoc network.
