Kindly help in locating this Hadith with brief explanation. The gist of the Hadith is as follows:

“Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sent Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with the women of his family, he sent them ahead to Mina from Muzdalifah. They performed Fajr Salah at Mina.”

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
