Answer:

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

The ideal prayer on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in the prayer in the Shafi’i school is as follows:

اَللَّهُمَ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ عَبدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ النَبِيِّ الأُمِّيِّ وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ وأَزوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيتِهِ، كَمَا صَلَّيتَ وعَلَى سَيِّدِنا إِبرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنا إِبرَاهِيمَ، وَبَارِكْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَبِيِّ الأُمِيِّ وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ وأَزوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيتِهِ، كَمَا بَارَكتَ عَلَى سَيِّدِنا إِبرَاهِيمَ وعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنا إِبرَاهِيمَ فِي العَالَمِينَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيد

Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin ‘abdika wa rasulika n-nabiyyi l- ummiyyi wa ‘ala ali sayyidina muhammadin wa ‘ala ali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa azwajihi wa dhuriyyatihi kama sallayta ‘ala Sayyidina Ibrahima wa ‘ala ali Sayyidina Ibrahima innaka hamidun majid
Wa barik ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala ali ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadi-nin-nabiyyi l-ummiyyi wa ‘ala ali sayyidina muhammadin wa azwajihi wa dhuriyyatihi kama barakta ‘ala Sayyidna Ibrahima wa ‘ala ali Sayyidina Ibrahima, innaka hamidun majid.

O Allah, send blessings upon Our Master Muhammad, Your slave and messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, and upon the family of Our Master Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring, just as You sent blessings upon Our Master Abraham, and upon the family of Our Master Abraham, verily You are ever praiseworthy and glorious. And bless Our Master Muhammad, the Unlettered Prophet, and the family of Our Master Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring just as You blessed Our Master Abraham and the family of Our Master Abraham, verily You are ever praiseworthy and glorious” (Kitab al-Adhkar, Nawawi)

I pray this helps.
