Expert Answer:

A magnet has certain regions inside them which are called magnetic domains. Now the property of these domains is that they are aligned in one direction.
 
So, they produce a net field along the lines of the domains. Due to this they have a magnetic field associated with them. Other substances do not have their domains or particles aligned in a direction, and so they do not possess magnetism.
