Mu’awiyah ibn Mu’awiyah high rank due to continuously reciting Surah Ikhlas

Question

I have found a Hadith in Tafsir Ibn Kathir regarding a virtue of Surah Ikhlas. Please verify the authenticity?

Angel Jibril (‘alayhis salam) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) whilst he was in Tabuk and said: “O Muhammad! Witness/attend the funeral of Mu’awiyah Al-Muzani [radiyallahu ‘anhu].” The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) set out with his companions and Jibril [‘alayhis salam] descended among [i.e along with] 70,000 angels. Jibril [‘alayhis salam] then stretched his right wing over the mountains and they lowered themselves in humbleness, and he stretched his left wing over the earth and it lowered itself in humbleness to the point where we could see Makkah and Madinah. Then the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), Jibril, and the angels offered prayer [Janazah Salah] on that companion. When he [i.e Nabi – sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) finished the prayer, he said: ‘O Jibril! What elevated Mu’awiyah ibn Mu’awiyah [enabling him] to reach this status?’ Angel Jibril replied: “By reciting Qul Huwallahu Ahad whilst sitting, walking and riding.'”
