What is the reference for this narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibnul Harith ibn Jaz’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

“We did not hear a noise or a tremble/quaking in Madinah but we thought that it was Dajjal as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) [continuously] spoke to us about him and [warned] us of his appearance “
