Holding the Qur'aan without wudhu

Q: Can I recite or hold the Qur'aan without wudhu? Because i've heard that you will be able to hold the Qur'aan but the reward you will get is not like the reward that you will get with wudhu, in other words your reward is less.

A: It is not permissible to hold the Qur'aan without wudhu.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
