Salat Al Tunjina is a famous salat that is said to have numerous benefits. It is found in Part 3 of the Dala'il Al Khayrat.
Shaykh Salih Musa Al Darir recounts this story:
We were travelling by ship on the sea when a wind came upon us. This wind was known in the area and only very few people who encountered it would survive without drowning. The people on board the ship started screaming in fear of drowning.
My eyes overwhelmed me and I slept. I saw The Prophet ﷺ in a dream and he said to me: Tell the people of the ship to recite 1,000 times “Allahumma ṣalli ʿalā Sayyidinā Muḥammadin ṣalātan tunjinā…(until the end)” i.e. Salat Al Tunjina.
I woke up and told the people about my dream. So we recited Salat Al Tunjina around 300 times and we were saved.
اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد صلاة تنجينا بها من جميع الأهوال والآفات، وتقضي لنا بها جميع الحاجات، وتطهرنا بها من جميع السيئات، وترفعنا بها عندك أعلى الدرجات، وتبلغنا بها أقصى الغايات من جميع الخيرات في الحياة وبعد الممات.
O Allah, bless Sayyidina Muhammad with a blessing by which we are saved from all terrors and afflictions, by which we are granted all our needs, by which we are purified from all evils, by which we are raised up to the highest of degrees, and by it let us reach the furthest of goals in all good things, in life and after death
