Dear Student

A compass needle is a small bar magnet with north and south pole. The compass needle deflects due to repulsion/attraction with the bar magnet.

Bar magnet
The compass needle is a small magnet. That's why when a compass needle is brought near a bar magnet, its magnetic field lines interact with that of the bar magnet. Hence, a compass needle gets deflected near the magnet bar.
