Kindly provide the reference for the following narration:

“He should remember that Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla is with him wherever he is.”

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) and Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) have recorded these words as part of a lengthier Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mu’awiyah Al Ghadiri (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
