    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 281/183/L=1434) (1&2) Non-Muslims are not entitled to act upon the Islamic commandments (furu’at) hence if they give anything to any Muslim earning by haram source or buy anything from it then it is lawful for the Muslim to use and take. Hence in the question mentioned above it shall be lawful for the son to take the things bought by his non-Muslim father. However, it is necessary for the son to try with wisely and with politeness to convince his parents to accept Islam.
