Earthquakes or tremors precede eruptions.

Prediction of volcanic activity
Seismic activity (earthquakes and tremors) always occurs as volcanoes awaken and prepare to erupt and are a very important link to eruptions. Some volcanoes normally have continuing low-level seismic activity, but an increase may signal a greater likelihood of an eruption. The types of earthquakes that occur and where they start and end are also key signs.

Earthquakes and tremors always precede volcanic eruptions. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.

Quran 99:1-2 If the earth is shaken with its quake. If the earth brings out its loads.
١ إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا
٢ وَأَخْرَجَتِ الْأَرْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا

Earth brings out its loads by volcanic eruptions. In the Quran earthquakes precede volcanic eruptions.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that earthquakes precede eruptions?

The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
