If the deleted contact was among the Favorites one, to recover it, open the application > go to Favorite List > scroll all the way to the top of the list, then "pull it down" to refresh it. By doing this, any deleted contact will be restored. If the contact wasn't a Favorite, just add the contact back into your phone's address book. WhatsApp is automatically synchronizing your address book and add all contacts to its own contact list. There is no other way to recover a contact.
