Inheriting property that was purchased with money that was loaned from a bank

Q: If someone's father bought a lot of property in his life, but in the beginning, if he took a loan from the bank and mixed it with the money he earned to purchase some properties, if the father dies then is all the property halaal for his children? Because the father included the bank loan amount and bank takes interest when giving a loan.

A: What the father did was haraam. It is permissible for the children to inherit.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
