Salamun Alaykum!

I am in a position of having a brother that has openly declared himself a disbeliever between his circuit of friends, with me and my siblings and in written form. He's sane, mature and knowledgable. My mother knows about his disbelief but not my father. 

Death can come at any time and I have younger siblings to take care of, I don't want them to look up to my brother, and so I want to know what is the ruling of inheritance if my father dies, does my disbelieving brother have any share of my fathers heritage? 

I am a sister and I also have younger brothers who all are muslims, (it's very sad that I have to be overly clear about this)

I tried to search on other websites but I didn't find any answer.

Disbelievers do not inherit anything from a Muslim.

Ruling 2794. A Muslim inherits from a disbeliever (kāfir) but a disbeliever does not inherit from a deceased Muslim, even if he is the deceased’s father or son.
