Why do electrons and protons attract each other?

Because opposite charges attract, electrons and protons are attracted.

Physics has not yet explained the reason for this. There is no good explanation. You’ll be able to see the attractive force between an electron or a proton if you follow a Quantum Field Theory description with path integrals. Physics can only explain “how” and “what”, but not “why”.
