Chinese mathematician Zu Chongzhi from the 5th century (so before Islam) calculated that the value of pi is between 3.1415926 and 3.1415927 so he got the first 5 decimals right. This is much higher precision that than 3.14, so even if the Quran explicitly said 3.14, it wouldn't be amazing.
But the main difference is that Zu Chongzhi actually calculated the number, while the Quran doesn't say anything about it and it is only attributed to it by 21st century apologists.
