It doesn't seem that much.
Seems a bit of a low limit, especially as an effective statutory limit for negligent death in a state hospital, for example. Will that really act as a driver to ensure the best interests of people?

Muscat: Oman has raised diya (blood money) and arush (compensation for injuries) through a Royal decree issued on Wednesday evening.
The Royal order by Sultan Qaboos Bin Saeed has raised the diya for the deceased to 15,000 Omani riyals (about Dh143,000). At the same time the order stipulates that compensations for injuries will be estimated based on the diya, and in all cases a loss of the function of a limb shall be considered a loss of the limb.
