First Read and try to understand diagram of Android Contacts Data Store after that it's easy to understand whole contact flow. Three tier data model diagram is given below the snippets.

Code Snippets

//This class provides applications access to the content model.
ContentResolver cr = context.getContentResolver();

//RowContacts for filter Account Types
Cursor contactCursor = cr.query(
        ContactsContract.RawContacts.CONTENT_URI,
        new String[]{ContactsContract.RawContacts._ID,
                ContactsContract.RawContacts.CONTACT_ID},
        ContactsContract.RawContacts.ACCOUNT_TYPE + "= ?",
        new String[]{"com.whatsapp"},
        null);

//ArrayList for Store Whatsapp Contact
ArrayList<String> myWhatsappContacts = new ArrayList<>();

if (contactCursor != null) {
    if (contactCursor.getCount() > 0) {
        if (contactCursor.moveToFirst()) {
            do {
                //whatsappContactId for get Number,Name,Id ect... from  ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone
                String whatsappContactId = contactCursor.getString(contactCursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.RawContacts.CONTACT_ID));

                if (whatsappContactId != null) {
                    //Get Data from ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone of Specific CONTACT_ID
                    Cursor whatsAppContactCursor = cr.query(
                            ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI,
                            new String[]{ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTACT_ID,
                                    ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.NUMBER,
                                    ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.DISPLAY_NAME},
                            ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTACT_ID + " = ?",
                            new String[]{whatsappContactId}, null);

                    if (whatsAppContactCursor != null) {
                        whatsAppContactCursor.moveToFirst();
                        String id = whatsAppContactCursor.getString(whatsAppContactCursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTACT_ID));
                        String name = whatsAppContactCursor.getString(whatsAppContactCursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.DISPLAY_NAME));
                        String number = whatsAppContactCursor.getString(whatsAppContactCursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.NUMBER));

                        whatsAppContactCursor.close();

                        //Add Number to ArrayList
                        myWhatsappContacts.add(number);

                        showLogI(TAG, " WhatsApp contact id  :  " + id);
                        showLogI(TAG, " WhatsApp contact name :  " + name);
                        showLogI(TAG, " WhatsApp contact number :  " + number);
                    }
                }
            } while (contactCursor.moveToNext());
            contactCursor.close();
        }
    }
}

showLogI(TAG, " WhatsApp contact size :  " + myWhatsappContacts.size());
