I'm not sure why you'd consider reversing the hash.
Having seen people suggest similar things in the past, my assumption is that the reason for this is so that users can log in using only their password. Which is a thoroughly ill-conceived and insecure way of doing things. So, OP, if that was your intention, please don't do that.

    ++ While I don't recall seeing that usage myself, I completely agree with: ill-conceived, insecure and don't do it.
