To solve this error, we need to run the Connect-AzureAD command with the tenant ID specified but I was running only the Connect-AzureAD PowerShell command.
So I have executed the below PowerShell command
Connect-AzureAD -TenantId 5d9d690a-0310-474d-ae8b-42df2d549228 Get-AzureADUser
After executing the above command, this time I got the expected output without any issues. You can see the below screenshot for your reference.
