The whole idea to restore a password is absolute abuse. I explained the technical and ethical aspects of it, and the ethical aspect is the most important here.

If you mean "Can we tell what was hashed to produce this?" then the answer is "no". Hashes are designed to be one-way - you cannot regenerate the original input from teh hashed value.

Rehash? I hope that some appropriate cryptographic hash function was used. It makes it cryptographically infeasible to restore the password from the hash function; this is the whole point of such functions:[^].

Even if we could restore the password, it would be unethical. No one has any right to know any password except the users who created them for themselves, no matter what access or privileges you may have. A password is meant to be a totally private entity. The normal practice is to reset the password, never knowing what it was before. After reset, the user is supposed to change it. Only this way, never anything else.
