Look at the concern our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had for the Muslims....

Our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him.) even asked forgiveness for the oppressors too:

Abdullah ibn Kinanah ibn Abbas ibn Mirdas (r.a) narrated from his father that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) prayed for forgiveness for his nation one evening at `Arafat, and the response came, “I have forgiven them, except for the oppressor, with whom I will settle the score in favour of the one whom he wronged.” He said, “O Lord, if You will, then grant the wronged one from Paradise (a compensation) and forgive the oppressor.” No response came (that evening). The next day at Muzdalifah he repeated the supplication, and received a response to what he asked for. He (the narrator) said, “The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) laughed,” or he said, “He smiled. Abu Bakr and ‘Umar said to him, ‘May my father and mother be ransomed for you! This is not a time when you usually laugh. What made you laugh? May Allah make your years filled with laughter.’ He said, ‘The enemy of Allah, Iblees, when he came to know that Allah answered my prayer and had forgiven my nation, took some dust and started to sprinkle it on his head, uttering cries of woe and doom, and what I saw of his anguish made me laugh.’”  (Ibn Majah #3013)
