Hadith on Forgiveness: Seek forgiveness for yourself and believers

Abdullah ibn Sarjis reported: I met the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and I ate a meal of stew with him. I said, “I ask Allah to forgive you, O Prophet.” The Prophet said, “Yes and for you as well.” Then the Prophet recited the verse, “Seek forgiveness for your sins and for the believing men and women as well.” (47:19)
