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?

Shafi'i Fiqh

Actions of Agent must be in Favor of Principal

My father has granted me power of attorney to manage his funds. Is it permissible that I give a loan from his money, even a son/daughter of his? If I did so, is that loan a debt on him/her or part of their share in the inheritance? Is it permissible that I sell some of his property and distribute the money amongst some of the heirs? This is knowing that he is having health issues undermining his capacity.
