No, once you hash it, you’ll never get it back (especially when it’s salted, otherwise you could brute-force it with rainbow tables if the password is weak). That’s the whole point :)

When some one wants to login, he enters his password, then your back-end will have to hash it exactly the way it was hashed in the first place (same algorithm, same salt) and then you can compare the hash with the hash from the database.
