Charity Given to Rich Beggar doesn`t Become Part of his Property

We found out that our father was a beggar and this was the source of his estate. However, sometimes, the money that he collected from begging sufficed for our needs and there was even a surplus. Is it lawful for us to take our shares in the inheritance or not? If it is unlawful, is it permissible to use that inheritance as a loan and pay it back to charity on his behalf?
