STEP 1
Magnet(noun): a piece of iron or other material which has its component atoms so ordered that the material exhibits properties of magnetism, such as attracting other iron-containing objects or aligning itself in an external magnetic field.

STEP 2
a piece of iron or other material which has its component atoms so ordered that the material exhibits properties of THINGY-ISM , such as attracting other iron-containing objects or aligning itself in an external THINGY field.

Is it making sense?

I'll give it a try...

That's more like a process or property of Magnet; stating how magnet works. Try Magnetic Field.

Okay, how about:

Magnet(noun): a piece of iron or other material which has its component atoms so ordered that the material exhibits properties of attracting or being influenced by other iron-containing objects.

Okay nice try. But leave the "Noun" Magnet aside, it's dealing with terminology alone. Concisely, "any material that attracts iron" is known as Magnet.

Now, it attracts because it's magnet, or say it has such property, or its atoms' electrons are in such order that it attracts, whatsoever reasoning, it's all description, okay then, a definition also. But I'm confused about Scientific explanation of Magnet, why the specific order of electrons behave in such a way.

the question is not- "how do you define 'magnet'?"

but how do they work?

Seems the central issue here is the use of magnet versus magnetic. Its like trying to define between heat and hot. The are related but not the same.
