Wouldn't a sign of status be shown since you have like bazillion gold and like 100000000 acres of land?????
Many people have a lot of land, not many people can call themselves scholars
Its about what people thought was impressive at the time
Never said anything about scholars. Clearly only nobility/rich people would care about meaningless shit like status. Also, only rich people owned those kinds of significant areas of land, along with the aforementioned tons of gold and stuff.
Well, chances are nobility/rich people only really care what nobility and rich people think about them?
And being known as a scholar implies youre smart and virtuous
If youre crass people wont give you the time of day, at least not in ancient china
I mean yeah but I guess they just needed one more thing to separate themselves from the peasants

That's because they are in a christian country.
What you don't realise is that they pick up the values of the places they are in, and even though they retain their backwards attitudes to those values they still pick them up because it helps them to function better in the society they are in.
Islam is not a philosophical religion like Buddhism, Sikhism, Shintoism, or Christianity.
It is an instructive Religion like Judaism.
If you know even the basics about the bible it is night and day. The Old Testament (Jews) is all "You must do this!" "Walk in my ways or else!" "Kill those who don't walk in my ways"
But when Jesus comes around it's all "Try and be a good person if X happens, but if Y then do this so that you can love your fellow person".
Judeo Christianity had this first reform with the split that formed Christianity.
Then after a good while and thanks to people like Martin Luther you start getting Protestantism, where a failry militant and instructive version of Christianity (Catholicism) gets replaced by a purely metaphorical/meta religion (Protestantism).
These Christian values permeate European societies at there very basest levels. Equality for each man be it a king or a pauper is a Christian Value, and freedoms and rights to certain things were fought for and surprise surprise thanks to Magna Carta nobility all across Europe suddenly took their share of power from the Monarchs.
And this eventually passed to America.
The "muslims" subsequently coming into the country and living under christianity based laws and christian based values adapt their Islam so that it is more like Christianity than Islam.
The trouble comes when an actual Muslim (ISIS) comes along and points to the holy book and at the passage where it says "Live your life like this, this is the word of Allah, you do not follow the word of allah, you are not a muslim"
Aside from maybe praying towards mecca once in a blue moon and fasting for a certain time each year western "Muslims" are not muslims at all.
Think of it in terms of Judaism.
A jewish dude doesn't circumcise his kid, and the kid never wants a bar mitzvah. According to Jewish holy texts he is neither a man nor a Proper Jew. And in the times of the bible he would likely be shunned if not killed for not keeping to Jehova's covenant with Jacob.
You will notice that in the old testament there were "Commandments" and "Covenants". But in the new testament there are gospels where it's a series of moral teachings like "Try not to be a dick, and if someone is a dick to you don't stoop to their level."
Hopefully this makes it clearer.
When an actual muslim comes and threatens "Muslims" they will either be killed or forced to live their lives according to the words in the Qur'an. Non-believers will either be killed or foreceably converted, as is instructed in the book.
There is no old/new testament in the Qur'an. Just all Old Testament, which anyone can say is pretty much everything that was wrong with religion before it became the basis for the more metaphorical protestant Christianity that the entire west (Including politcal liberalism) is based on.
