A father who lost three of his children when they were mowed down by a drunk driver has revealed new details of the killer's surprise religious transformation.  

Danny and Leila Abdallah's children Antony, 13, Angelina, 12, Sienna, eight, and their niece Veronique Sakr, 11, were walking on a footpath to buy ice-cream at Oatlands, in Sydney's west, when they were hit by a car and killed on February 1, 2020.

The driver, Samuel Davidson, was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time. He is serving a 20-year jail sentence.

Three other children were injured but survived including the Abdallahs' other daughter Liana, then 10, and their niece, Mabelle, and nephew, Tcharbel.

Daily Mail Australia revealed in July Davidson was becoming a Maronite Catholic in jail because of the forgiveness the family showed him following the tragedy.  

Mr Abdallah, whose family are Maronite Catholics themselves, opened up further about Davidson's religious conversion on Friday.
