Hadith of Bukhari where the Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: “A Muslim does not inherit from a kafir and a kafir does not inherit from a Muslim.”

لَا يَرِثُ الْمُسْلِمُ الْكَافِرَ وَلَا الْكَافِرُ الْمُسْلِمَ

There is a consensus of Oulama regarding this subject that a Muslim cannot inherit from a kafir and vice versa.
