The ink of the scholar is holier than the blood of the martyr.

Is this hadith authentic??

I learn it's from jami al sagheer

The hadith you are inquiring about is:

مداد حبر العالم أقدس من دم الشهيد

The ink of the scholar is holier than the blood of the martyr.

I could not find the hadith in Al-Jāmi' as Saghīr, nor in any other book of hadith. However, there is a hadith with a similar meaning in Al-Jāmi' as Saghīr, which says:

يوزن يوم القيامة مداد العلماء ودم الشهداء فيرجح مداد العلماء على دم الشهداء

NOTE. My own translation, so treat with care.

The ink of the scholars is weighed on Judgment Day and the blood of the martyrs, and the ink of the scholars outweighs the blood of the martyrs.

— Al-Jāmi' as Saghīr, Hadith 14582

Even this second hadith was graded as madū' (fabricated) by Muhammad Nasiruddin al-Albani in his book Da'īf al-Jāmi' as Saghīr 2/937 (Arabic only). This hadith, too, has no known origin.
