The Hajees who read prayers in Arafat in the camps, whether alone or by jamat,(as someone in the camp becomes an Imam), should they read the Zohar & Asar prayers combined or Zohar at Zohar time &Asar @Asar time? So when they start their Waqouf after Zawal &Zohar prayers, then they give a break for Asar prayers &then again continue with Waqouf? Or is correct to complete both prayers together &do waqouf at a stretch?

Dear in Islam
The answer of your question is as follows:
There are some conditions to offer Zuhar and Asar Salat combined in Arafat. One of them is Imam (the head of Muslim state) or his Naa-yeb (deputy). And the other condition is JamaˇŻat (congregation). After zenith the Imam will give two sermons related to the Masail of Hajj and sit between them for a moment like the sermons of Juma and then lead Zuhar and Asar Salat combined at the time of Zuhar Salat. (Aalam Geeri V: 1 P: 229, Hadaa-yah V: 1 P: 224)

One who offers Zuhar Salat alone or in separate congregation in the camp should offer Asar Salat at its time. Combined Salat is not permitted in such cases. (Aalam Geeri V: 1 P: 228, Hadaa-yah V: 1 P: 225)
Allah knows the best
