... 'It is not the ink versus the blood. This verse is saying the ink is just as important as the blood. Is there reference to anything else being weighed in the Koran. I'll bet that the standard interpretation is that learning is not as important as blood.'

In Islam the ink takes precedence over blood at any moment: God High Exalted said in (Surah 16 verse 125): "Call mankind to the way of your lord with wisdom and sound advice, and reason with them in a well mannered way..."

Here is the complete statement about the ink and the blood, which was stated by a 'True Muslim':
Al Hassan (may God have mercy upon him) said: " The Ink of the learned will be likened to the blood of the Martyrs, and the former will prove superior". (The incomplete statement just goes to prove that prejudice dose die hard in the hearts of those who see with one eye only good and with the other only bad; here we learn a lesson that it is best to have a unified pair of eyes or perhaps the yin (g) & the Yan (g) should truly bind in symmetry in the heart of the self divided or doubter)

I hope this will clear up any miss understanding.

With Love & Understanding.
