Mobile means moving and ad hoc means temporary with no any fixed infrastructure so mobile ad hoc networks are a class of temporary networks in which nodes are moving without any fixed infrastructure or centralized management. Due to the various applications that use MANETs are such as battlefield, emergency services, and disaster discovery, MANETs suggest many advantages too many organizations that need wireless roaming. Routing in MANETs is a not easy task and has expected a large amount of attention from researchers around the world. To overcome this difficulty a number of routing protocols have been developed and the number is silent increasing day-by-day.
