Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Can children touch the Qur’an without wudhu
It is permissible for immature boys and girls to touch the Qur’an without wudhu.
The reason for its permissibility is that in commanding the child to perform wudhu every time would be difficult for the child and if one delays teaching the child until he matures one would miss out on utilizing the gift of memorization that young children possess. (Fatawa Mahmoodiyah p.27 v.6 & p.24 v.1 & Masaail Wudhu p.113)
